Jan. 27, 2014

Police warned two teenagers after their father declined to press charges for using his credit card to purchase Facebook games Jan. 17.

According to the South Milwaukee police report:

A resident told police Jan. 17 that his 14- and 15-year-old sons used his credit card to purchase Facebook games.

The father "did not want to press charges against either of them, because he would end up paying the fines." He instead asked an officer to speak to his sons, whom he also suspected were using marijuana.

The officer "explained the charges that would be brought if this activity continued. Both admitted using their father's credit card without his consent and apologized."
