Police Report: Pile of Dead Fish; $25K Bar Tab; Burglary

The following information was supplied by the  Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

Fishy Situation

A Waukesha woman had a fishy situation on Monday.
No, really.

The woman, who lives in the 300 block of West College Avenue, contacted police at 7:26 p.m. Monday to report that someone had “dumped a huge pile of dead fish in her garden,” according to the police department’s call log.

It wasn’t the only suspicious activity at the woman’s house, though. She told dispatchers her tulips were stolen a few days ago.

Police checked out the area and found several small fish that were dumped in the flower bed. The fish appeared to be leftover bait that was dumped in the garden.

Police re-assured the woman and told her to contact police if more suspicious activities occur at her house.

Very Expensive Bar Tab

A typically night out drinking can be pricey. But for one area man, his bar tab reached nearly $25,000 for a few drinks. It also kept him from putting fast food on his debit card on Monday.

A man reported at 12:47 p.m. Monday that Club Velvet, 409 Delafield St., charged $24,695.60 as a tip for two rounds of drinks to his debit card. The bar owner was working with the bank to correct the problem as the bank was going to charge him a $100 service fee.

The man discovered the problem when his card was declined at an area McDonald’s.
