3900 Dempsey Rd.


The call that came in last night was regarding a couple of suspicious people a citizen saw hanging out behind Mikes Horse Shoe Bar and Grill, 3900 Dempsey Rd. One was wearing a face mask and hood, the other had a hood up. Both were clad in black, and one appeared to be carrying a handgun. The two young men must have realized a witness was watching them, because they took off running into some nearby woods. Several MPD officers and K9 Bowie responded to establish a perimeter. Bowie picked up the trail, and led his human counterparts to a fenced in backyard on Claire St. where a bag containing a loaded handgun was recovered. It was listed as having been stolen in Dane County a couple of years ago.  No suspects were located.
