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 Common Council learned of the stockpile Monday during a report by the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department.
