That was going to be salad ...

One robber's list of things to steal apparently included whiskey, a thermometer and lettuce. (OK, maybe the thermometer was an impulse item.)

One robber's list of things to steal apparently included whiskey, a thermometer and lettuce.

Police were called to a grocery store late Thursday after witnesses said a 46-year-old man from Brown Deer threatened employees. The workers said the man gestured as though he had a concealed gun and told them he would shoot.

The man left with 12 bottles of whiskey, two heads of lettuce and a digital thermometer, police said.

Officers found a vehicle in a nearby neighborhood that matched a description given by store employees. The man was taken into custody and identified from store surveillance video.
