Large buck creates burglary scare

Nov. 21, 2011

Brookfield police officers rushed to a reported burglary in progress in the early hours of Nov. 15 only to find that the perpetrator was a clumsy buck.

A woman reported that she had heard what sounded like an explosion and found broken glass outside a neighbor's condominium in the 18000 block of Emerald Circle just before 2 a.m. Nov. 15, according to a police report.

Nothing was disturbed inside the condo, and officers found deer tracks leading to and from the building, Capt. Jim Adlam said.

Officers then scanned the perimeter and found a large buck limping off.

"Apparently it ran into the door, broke the glass and ran off," Adlam said.

It is estimated that it will cost the homeowner about $300 to replace the door.
