Crime on metro buses, West Town mall

Postby Beaver » Thu May 09, 2013 9:24 pm

We've discussed this before:

viewtopic.php?f=36&t=54057&p=676533&hilit=west+towne#p676533

but the problems are in the news again. More robberies on metro buses and in West Towne mall bathroom stalls. This time the victims are women. I hope they catch the robbers before they strike again.

"Madison police are looking for help in finding a thief they say is responsible for stealing iPhones from three different people on three different occasions on Metro buses. Police say the thief targets women sitting near rear doors and waits for the bus to stop to take the phones from their hands."

On Wednesday at about 7:48 p.m., the man crawled under the divider and stood up inside the stall with the woman, according to a report. He put a handgun to the 40-year-old woman's head, demanded money and then fled, police said."

And the beltline was scarier than usual Thursday.

Police: Wrong-way Beltline driver speeding at 95 mph

"According to authorities, a car chase spanning two counties and requiring multiple agencies came to an end in Madison Thursday at about 7 p.m. The Mt. Horeb Police Department said a car driven by a 31-year-old Platteville woman was going eastbound in the westbound side of Highway 18/151. The car at times drove into oncoming traffic and was traveling at high speeds, reaching 95 mph at one point, police said."

They should post the picture of the bathroom robber and shoplifters prominently at the entrance of every store in all the malls and plazas in town.
Even at the entrance doors.
Kind of like the "Madison's Most Wanted" that is in the newspaper.
Let the public ane the employees be aware of what these people look like and I bet the mall crime will decrease.
