An 18-year-old Milwaukee man, a student, was arrested for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia with the enhancement of being within 1,000 feet of a school at Concordia University, 12800 N. Lake Shore Drive, at 3:18 p.m. Nov. 29. The man had a lock box locked to his bed which contained a drug pipe with residue. He also had an electronic marijuana vaporizer, a grinder in his dresser and brass knuckles.

DRUNKEN DRIVING

A 36-year-old Cedarburg woman was arrested for drunken driving, refusal to take a breath test and lane deviation in the 10600 block of North Wauwatosa Road at 2:10 a.m. Nov. 29. She admitted having a few drinks at a local bar. Her preliminary blood alcohol content was 0.106. She was taken for a blood draw.

A 55-year-old Glendale man was arrested for drunken driving, driving while suspended, failure to have insurance and open intoxicants after driving erratically in the 9600 block of North Cedarburg Road at 1:10 a.m. Dec. 4. The man admitted knowing his license was suspended and he shouldn't be driving but was doing a friend a favor. Open beer was found in the car. The man, who admitted smoking marijuana, had a BAC of 0.11. The man's license expired in 1994 and had not been renewed.

OTHER

At least six reports of fraud or attempted fraud were reported by elderly residences who had received calls from their "grandsons" who said they were in trouble and needed money to be sent via Western Union to get them out of trouble Dec. 4 to Dec. 6. Of the reported incidents, two individuals sent more than $10,000 to the perpetrators. One had been told her grandson was arrested for drunken driving after an accident in New York and asked to send $2,500, which she did. She then received a call from his "lawyer" and sent more money and then sent more money to pay for a rental car the boy had allegedly been driving. Another scam was averted when an 84-year-old Milwaukee man came to the Mequon Police Department because he thought his grandson was being held in a Thiensville jail and was told to send $2,000 to get him out. Mequon Police Capt. Daniel Buntrock sent out a news release urging residences to be aware of these scams targeted to people 60 years and older and to report them to police at once. "The perpetrators are convincing" the release said and are able to "obtain detailed information regarding" the families.

A natural gas leak was reported in a home under construction in the 10900 block of North Haddonstone Place at 4:15 p.m. Dec. 6. The bolts holding the gas lines had been tampered with and the home was filled with gas. The gas was turned off and the home ventilated and no further damage was reported.
