Security guards are trained to spot suspicious activity. At Pick 'n Save on State Street a man walking through the store with a large leather purse got the staff's attention.
According to a Wauwatosa police report:
A 27-year-old Milwaukee man was seen putting a bottle of liquor in the purse at 5:41 p.m. Friday. At the checkout, he paid for a salad but not the alcohol.
A security guard tried to stop him but he became combative and tried to head-butt the guard in the face.
A search of his purse turned up a steak knife with a five-inch blade, a hammer and 2.6 grams of marijuana.
He was on probation for drug and weapons charges.
The man was arrested for retail theft, carrying a concealed weapon, marijuana possession and violating probation.
