ATF’s Milwaukee storefront had minimal security from burglars


The door had no deadbolt. The few scratches and marks told police the men had little trouble prying it open. Hard to believe it was all that stood between the burglars and a storefront full of goods belonging to federal agents running an undercover gun sting.

And who would imagine the thieves would have unfettered access to the place for three days, propping open the door with a shoe and returning the next day with a moving truck to finish the job?

But thats what happened as burglars hit the ATFs Fearless Distributing storefront in Milwaukees Riverwest neighborhood in October, making off with nearly $40,000 worth of merchandise – maybe more, according to interviews with neighbors and police reports newly obtained by the Journal Sentinel.
