204 State St. (Paul's Club)


Jeffrey B. White, age 53, no permanent address
Mr. White was arrested for Attempt to Commit Theft and Unlawful Trespass.


Female, age 24, Wausau, WI


A downtown bartender saw a man trying to take a woman's purse Thursday night. It was situated on top of the bar at Paul's Club and the employee immediately recognized the suspect who was trying to steal it. He had been kicked out of the nightclub several times in the past for similar theft attempts. The suspect slowly slid the purse his way as its owner conversed with friends. Just as he grabbed it, the bartender was on him. The observant employee snatched the purse back and attempted to keep the thief in the bar as police were called. The suspect was able to get away, but the bartender followed him outside, and stayed on his trail until officers could make the arrest.
