Nearly 90 percent of car thieves in Milwaukee get away with it.
The latest numbers from Milwaukee Police show that just eleven percent of Milwaukee’s stolen car cases last year ended with an arrest. Just five percent ended with charges filed. Milwaukee saw more than 10 thousand-500 cars stolen in the city last year. That’s more than Chicago saw in 2021. Of the people who are charged, Milwaukee’s D.A. Office says 300 were under 18 last year compared to just 99 adults.
