Sometimes police try to solve crimes with very general descriptions. Earlier this month, police in Milwaukee released a description and sketch of a person they believe has committed four sexual assaults in the Milwaukee area. Police gave an age that ranged 15 years and a height description that varied by 5 inches. The person also had hair that was described as dark. Many times these descriptions are vague and police use them in hopes of gathering new evidence.

Authorities have charged 24 people for allegedly running a drug dealing operation. According to reports, investigators believe the men brought cocaine into Milwaukee and converted it to crack cocaine before selling it. These drug charges can have serious consequences if the people are convicted in Milwaukee. When someone is accused of a drug crime, their reputations and opportunities for future employment might be threatened.
Drug charges can significantly damage a young person's future. Many times when a person is charged with a drug crime, they face not only criminal penalties, but might find it difficult to obtain employment and housing. If a teen is charged with a felony drug crime in Milwaukee, they might not only face these issues, but also have difficulty obtaining a higher education at some point in their future. Because of this, it is especially important for a person charged with a felony to formulate a rigorous criminal defense.
A man was arrested this week after police allege he made fraudulent $100 bills and tried to pass them off to a cashier. A report indicates the cashier didn't think the bill looked right and wouldn't accept it. Police say they investigated and raided the man's Milwaukee apartment after they suspected he was committing fraud, where they found chemicals and an inkjet printer, which could have been used to make bad bills. The man was charged with passing bad bills.
Police are accusing a man of being drunk when he crashed his vehicle, causing injuries to a passenger in the car. He was taken to the Milwaukee County Jail but was not charged with drunk driving at the time of a news report on the incident. According to the same news report the man is believed to have suffered a concussion during the accident. This may have been why police believed the man was under the influence of alcohol after the accident.
