The Shorewood Police Department was made aware of a social media post regarding a police contact on August 4, 2020 at 10:13 p.m. The police department did reach out and talked with the author of the social media post and informed them of the information that we had related to the police contact.

Based upon our review of the police interaction the following information is based upon that review. The interaction took place on the top level of the parking structure located at 4034 N Bartlett Avenue. The officer was conducting a crime prevention patrol of the parking structure when he observed a vehicle parked on the top level of the structure that was occupied by several people. It should be noted that officers do routinely patrol the parking structure as a result of complaints we have received in the past.

The officer conducted a field interview. As he approached the vehicle, the officer detected the strong odor of marijuana. In his initial contact with the driver/owner of the vehicle, the officer confirmed the odor was emanating from inside of the vehicle. The driver/owner of the vehicle informed the officer that a cousin uses her vehicle and he routinely smokes marijuana inside of her vehicle. Additionally, the officer was informed by the front seat passenger that she did smoke marijuana just prior to entering the vehicle that night.

Based on the odor of the marijuana coming from the vehicle, the vehicle was searched. The occupants denied smoking marijuana inside the vehicle and stated there may be “shake” in the vehicle. The search of the vehicle did not reveal any marijuana presently inside the vehicle. As a result of the investigation, there were no citations issued and no arrests were made during the police contact.

As a reminder, overnight parking restrictions are back in effect. If you are parking on the street between 3am and 5am, you need to either obtain permission to do so via our website or have an overnight parking permit.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial is centered in the 400 block of E Street, NW, Washington, DC and is the nation’s monument to law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. Dedicated on October 15, 1991, the Memorial honors federal, state and local law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the safety and protection of our nation and its people.

The Memorial features two curving, 304-foot-long blue-gray marble walls. Carved on these walls are the names of officers who have been killed in the line of duty in the United States. Unlike many other memorials in Washington, DC, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial is ever-changing: new names of fallen officers are added to the monument each spring, in conjunction with National Police Week.

This is to slow the spread of the virus and preserve the health of our community.

UNLOCKED HOME ENTERED - ATTEMPTED VEHICLE THEFT

Residents of a home on the 2400 block of E. Menlo Blvd were awakened just after 4:00 am this morning (4/1) by an unknown person attempting to steal their vehicle from the driveway. The vehicle thief crashed into a patio fence while trying to back out and abandoned the car, fleeing on foot. At that time the residents discovered that their home had been entered through an unlocked rear door where the vehicle keys had been taken along with some cash.

Shorewood Police also received a report that unlocked vehicles were entered on the 3500 block of Hackett overnight. These incidents are possibly related.

Criminals are not "staying at home" during this COVID-19 pandemic so be vigilant and take measures to protect your property as well as your health. Please keep homes and vehicles locked.

Scammers are taking advantage of fears surrounding the Coronavirus. They’re setting up websites to sell bogus products, and using fake emails, texts, and social media posts as a ruse to take your money and get your personal information. The emails and posts may be promoting awareness and prevention tips, and fake information about cases in your neighborhood. They also may be asking you to donate to victims, offering advice on unproven treatments, or contain malicious email attachments. Some examples of COVID-19 scams include:

- Treatment scams: Scammers are offering to sell fake cures, vaccines, and advice on unproven treatments for COVID-19.

- Supply scams: Scammers are creating fake shops, websites, social media accounts, and email addresses claiming to sell medical supplies currently in high demand, such as surgical masks. When consumers attempt to purchase supplies through these channels, fraudsters pocket the money and never provide the promised supplies.

- Provider scams: Scammers are also contacting people by phone and email, pretending to be doctors and hospitals that have treated a friend or relative for COVID-19, and demanding payment for that treatment.

- Charity scams: Scammers are soliciting donations for individuals, groups, and areas affected by COVID-19.

- Phishing scams: Scammers posing as national and global health authorities, including the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are sending phishing emails designed to trick recipients into downloading malware or providing personal identifying and financial information.

- App scams: Scammers are also creating and manipulating mobile apps designed to track the spread of COVID-19 to insert malware that will compromise users’ devices and personal information.

- Investment scams: Scammers are offering online promotions on various platforms, including social media, claiming that the products or services of publicly traded companies can prevent, detect, or cure COVID-19, and that the stock of these companies will dramatically increase in value as a result. These promotions are often styled as “research reports,” make predictions of a specific “target price,” and relate to microcap stocks, or low-priced stocks issued by the smallest of companies with limited publicly available information.

Avoid these and similar scams by taking the following steps:

- Independently verify the identity of any company, charity, or individual that contacts you regarding COVID-19.

- Check the websites and email addresses offering information, products, or services related to COVID-19. Be aware that scammers often employ addresses that differ only slightly from those belonging to the entities they are impersonating. For example, they might use “cdc.com” or “cdc.org” instead of “cdc.gov.”

- Be wary of unsolicited emails offering information, supplies, or treatment for COVID-19 or requesting your personal information for medical purposes. Legitimate health authorities will not contact the general public this way.

- Do not click on links or open email attachments from unknown or unverified sources. Doing so could download a virus onto your computer or device.

- Make sure the anti-malware and anti-virus software on your computer is operating and up to date.

- Ignore offers for a COVID-19 vaccine, cure, or treatment. Remember, if there is a medical breakthrough, you won’t hear about it for the first time through an email, online ad, or unsolicited sales pitch.

- Check online reviews of any company offering COVID-19 products or supplies. Avoid companies whose customers have complained about not receiving items.

- Research any charities or crowdfunding sites soliciting donations in connection with COVID-19 before giving. Remember, an organization may not be legitimate even if it uses words like “CDC” or “government” in its name or has reputable looking seals or logos on its materials. For online resources on donating wisely, visit the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) website.

- Be wary of any business, charity, or individual requesting payments or donations in cash, by wire transfer, gift card, or through the mail. Don’t send money through any of these channels.

- Be cautious of “investment opportunities” tied to COVID-19, especially those based on claims that a small company’s products or services can help stop the virus. If you decide to invest, carefully research the investment beforehand. For information on how to avoid investment fraud, visit the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) website.

- For the most up-to-date information on COVID-19, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) websites.

SCAM ALERT

Last Monday around noon, two subjects posing as power company employees were allowed into a home in Whitefish Bay. While in the home, they distracted the homeowner and stole jewelry.

One of the subjects was described as a male Hispanic, in his early 30’s, approximately 5’06” to 5’08” tall and 160 lbs. The subject had a close trimmed goatee, grey jacket, khaki cargo pants, with a lanyard around his neck and carrying a clipboard. The subjects were in a newer silver/grey small SUV. No description was given of the second subject.

Other North Shore Police agencies have had similar incidents reported to them in recent weeks. Please be careful of those you allow in your residence. Always ask to see identification. Even if ID is shown, don't be afraid to call the company represented and confirm legitimacy.

If you have any questions about their identity please contact police immediately.

If you have elderly neighbors please alert them to this activity as they may not be aware that this may be a scam.

Armed Robbery/Carjacking (Weapon Implied) 3500 Block of N Maryland Ave

On February 14, 2020, at 1:27 pm, an armed robbery/carjacking (with an implied weapon) took place in the 3500 Block of N Maryland Ave.

At that time, the victim was seated inside a vehicle that was parked on the driveway of a residence on that block. Shortly after the vehicle had been started, two male subjects, dressed in all black clothing, approached the vehicle. One suspect demanded that the victim exit the vehicle and implied he had a weapon. Both suspects then entered the vehicle and fled the scene.

If you have any information regarding this incident, please call the Shorewood Police Department at 414-847-2610.

It has come to our attention that our agency’s name and telephone number have recently been used fraudulently by scam artists. The scam artists are reportedly calling individuals claiming to be a Detective with the Shorewood Police Department and that they are investigating an internet related crime. Based on the information we have gathered, the calls appear to be targeting individuals who reside outside of the State of Wisconsin.

However, should you receive a similar phone call, we would encourage you not to provide any personal information to the caller. We would suggest that you request that the caller provide you their name and the case number for the incident they are investigating. You should then inform them that you will call them back regarding that incident. Do not call any telephone numbers provided to you by the person that telephoned you. Only use you main telephone number (414-847-2610) and provide us with the name of the officer who contacted you and the case number that you were given in order to verify that the phone call you received was legitimate.
