Thieves Nab $500 Worth of Newport Cigarettes

Several thefts from vehicles, a dog biting, and a cigarette theft appeared in the Menomonee Falls Police Department reports over the past week.

At 10:29 p.m. Nov. 14, two men entered Woodman’s and stole eight cartons of Newport 100 cigarettes. The cartons of cigarettes were worth a combined $535.92. The two men left the scene in a maroon Ford Taurus.

Also in the reports:

You can sell these in the hood for good cash. I doubt they are all for personal use.
