A Target employee’s small-scale embezzlement scheme came to a crashing end earlier this week.
Sometime between Feb. 3 and Feb. 20, an employee created gift cards and kept them for himself. The teen admitted to creating the cards, and had about 20 of them in his possession. He used seven of them totaling $135. He was arrested and cited for theft.
A 23-year-old Milwaukee man was pulled over for a suspended license on Feb. 21 near Highway 41/45 and Highway 145. A search of the vehicle revealed the driver was in possession of marijuana.
