Every Monday, the Milwaukee-area Patch sites share a feature called OMG PD, which singles out some of the odd and unique crimes reported throughout the suburbs.
This week, Greenfield Patch users get an extra dose as these four items in the Greenfield Police Department incident book for the week of Dec. 31 to Jan. 6, caught this editor’s eye.
1. A woman called police at 2:30 a.m. Jan. 6, and requested help to get out from between a pair of trash bins in the 4000 block of South 65th Street.
Turns out the woman was Dumpster diving but slipped and fell between the two trash bins.
She appeared to have dislocated her ankle and was conveyed to Froedtert Hospital by Greenfield paramedics.
2. A 49-year-old Milwaukee man was issued a disorderly conduct citation Jan. 2, after police say he swore loudly at employees of Blockbuster, 4285 S. 76th St.
The employees told police the man told them not to "speak to him like a child" and used profanities in the store in front of other customers.
What was the man so upset about? A $2 charge to his credit card he felt was posted erroneously to his account.
3. A resident in the 4800 block of South 72nd Street came to the police station Jan. 5, and told officers she is in police protection and that “Agent Slice” has her keys.
She also told police that there was a ghost roaming her apartment building with X-ray vision and she needed police assistance.
She was advised police were not equipped to handle that type of complaint, and her family was contacted.
4. On New Year’s Eve, a man called police to report his neighbor in the apartment complex in the 3300 block of South 100th Street turns the hot water on when he is in the shower, causing his to go cold; knocks on his door, which gets his dog barking and leaves dog feces on the floor in front of the his door in an attempt to harass him.
He was asked to talk to the building management.
