Stump the Law Librarian

Q: My friend works out at East Towne Mall and said there was some sort of robbery in the parking lot a couple weeks ago. Is there anywhere I can check online to see what that was about?

A: Sure! The Madison Police Department has a resource listed under "Press Releases" that connects users to the "Current News Media Releases." You can search by date, type of incident, or text. Taking a quick look down the list, there is an entry on 12/22/05 regarding a strong armed robbery in the East Towne Mall parking lot.
