PULASKI, Wis. (WSAU) - Paying attention to what’s happening in your neighborhood can cut down on crime. Shawano County deputies were called early Tuesday morning from a resident who suspected a prowler was in his neighborhood. The caller gave deputies a description of the man and the bicycle he was riding.
A short time later, a search involving Shawano County sheriff’s deputies, Pulaski police, State Patrol troopers, and the City of Shawano’s police dog located the bicycle.
