A roundup of the latest from the Shorewood police log.

Two men made off with 30 cartons of cigarettes, worth $2,100, from Walgreens on Thursday, according to police.

Several boxes were stacked in the store located at 4081 N. Oakland Ave. waiting to be stocked behind the register and the two men grabbed a box and left the store without paying around 1:44 p.m., the police report says. They fled the scene in a Jeep with no plates parked on North Bartlett Avenue.

No arrests have been made.

Also in the police report:

  • Police chased down a 19-year-old Milwaukee man and arrested him for loitering and obstructing in the 3500 block of North Murray Avenue on Wednesday. Police say they received a report of a group smoking marijuana in a alleyway on the block and when they arrived, the suspect ran. He was located and taken into police custody in the 3400 block of Murray Avenue.
  • Two 17-year-old Shorewood boys were arrested Tuesday around 1:45 p.m. after police say they were observed trespassing near 3900 North Sherbrun Place and found them in possession of 10 grams of a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana.

There seems to be a lot more crime reported in the last year or so. I have had to call the police more in the last year than in the last 20 years.
