An employee at a plastic surgeon's office threatened to "blow the head off" one of the doctors and then herself after she was placed on administrative leave, police reports allege.
A physician at Greater Milwaukee Plastic Surgeons, 13800 W. North Ave., asked police on Sept. 4 to contact the woman and tell her she was no longer welcome at the office. He also wanted her to be warned to halt making threats.
In other recent calls to police:
FBI contacted about suspicious calls: A 69-year-old woman in the 1700 block of North 166th Street told police Sept. 7 she got a call from a man with a Middle Eastern accent asking her to turn her computer on, which she did. She said one of her friends received a similar call that day, also asking her to call a phone number. Police referred the complaint to the FBI and an internet fraud service.
Mother turns in son: A Spring Drive woman called police Sept. 7 after finding several GPS units and a Kindle in her 17-year-old son's bedroom and suspecting they were stolen. He was reported missing at the time and when found, taken to Waukesha County shelter care.
Give me my engagement ring back: An employee at Brookfield East High School called police Sept. 5 to report her ex-fiancee was leaving harassing messages for her, including several at her work.
The gist of the angry, sometimes profanity-laced calls: He wanted the engagement ring back. Police told the 36-year-old woman to tell the man to stop calling her and then cease communication with him. She also may want to seek a temporary restraining order, they said.
Fumes making workers sick: Employees at Verizon Wireless, 17550 W. Bluemound Rd., were evacuated for the night Sept. 5 after roof repairs sent a chemical smell into the building. People reported feeling sick, and the building was ventilated.
Garage burglary: Someone broke into a garage in the 19200 block of Brookdale Drive and stole a portable drill and a scale, sometime between Sept. 3 and 5. There were no signs of forced entry and the garage needs a code to open.
Sleeping at the wheel: A 21-year-old woman was stopped by police and a blood sample taken after she was seen sleeping through a couple of light changes at the Barker-Bluemound Road interchange about 2:45 a.m. Sept. 5. The results of the blood draw were not yet available.
Computer hoax alleging porn: A resident in the 12800 block of Pinewood Road said his computer screen suddenly went black and there was a message about porn with a notice purporting to be from the FBI saying he had violated copyright laws and had to pay a $200 fine using Moneypak.
His attempts to identify and remove the virus were unsuccessful and police urged him to call a computer specialist to get it removed.
No smoking allowed: Police stopped to check on a woman sitting on the ground between two vehicles in the Brookfield Square mall parking lot about 7 p.m. Sept. 4. Turns out she was just taking a smoke. Her daughter wouldn't let her smoke inside the car.
First-day-of-school bus problems:
- A grandmother called police when her 5-year-old granddaughter didn't get dropped off at the same time as neighbor children down the street in the 12800 block of Falcon Drive on the first day of school Sept. 4. The girl did arrive at 5 p.m.
- A 4-year-old boy failed to return home as expected from the Milwaukee German Immersion School, prompting his father to call the bus company, school and then police. The bus company was busy and the school closed. The father later got a call from the bus company saying the bus had been disabled and his son was fine and on his way home to the 300 block of Westmoor Drive.
Fool me once: T.J. Maxx, 17460 W. Bluemound Rd., reported that two black males had stolen $1,789 in boys merchandise on Aug. 31 and again lifted $895 on Sept. 3. Employees gave police a description and license plate on the vehicle that fled Sept. 3.
