Wis. town's department has 'too much ammo'

With 58,000 round, Pewaukee's ammo cache dwarfs other local departments


Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

PEWAUKEE, Wis. — The city's police department stockpiled 58,000 rounds of ammunition - more than 10 times the amount the average Lake Country department has on hand - and officials are unsure how such an amount was purchased, at what cost or even where it was purchased.

The department had so much ammunition, the supply exceeded the capacity of the armory and some was stored in the city garage.
The Common Council learned of the stockpile Monday during a report by the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department.
