    An alleged robber is on the run after allegedly using his finger to mime a gun and steal several hundred dollars from a Belgium truck stop, authorities said Tuesday.

    The robbery occurred about 10 p.m. Monday at How-Dea Service Center, 109 Royal Ave., or county Highway LL, said Lt. Cory McCormick of the Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Department.

    Manager Vickie Boehnlein said the robber entered the truck stop when there was just one employee in the store, a 25-year-old clerk who was finishing his shift.

    “He came up behind the cashier, so the cashier did not know if he had a weapon,” Boehnlein said. “The cashier believed he did because he put a finger up against his back.”

    McCormick said the man did not actually have a weapon. Boehnlein said the clerk is OK, “other than being frustrated by the whole thing and a little shaken up.”

    Capt. David Guss said the robber was “totally disguised,” decked out in camouflage pants, skater(sk8R)-type shoes, a blue windbreaker over a blue hooded sweatshirt, a stocking cap, sunglasses, gloves and a scarf.

    Guss said the location opens up a large pool of possible suspects.

    “ It’s a freeway so there’s transient people that could do this, but there’s local people who could do this, too,” Guss said.

    Heel-less fabric/composite shoes that might have been tennis shoes but for the particular lacing and style of lacing.

    Skateboarding is either a crime (on the public right of way) or trespassing on private property.

    Bwaaah, I used to have a bumper sticker that said "Skateboarding is not a crime"
    And I was quite the skate-rat in my early teens. Of course skate parks open a few decades later when I am too old to shred things up like I used to.

    I am betting the guy was wearing a pair of "Vans" or "Airwalk" shoes, and those are being referred to as sk8er shoes.

    Read Wisc. Stats. 943.13. If you are on private property not as invitee nor licensee then you are trespassing.

    Federal law does not define the proper users of the public right of way but state law does. Maybe the term of art "public right of way" threw you. Here's a link URL that might help you, http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/drivers/lawbook.htm

    My front door is specially built to pass my well earned ego but restrict the passage of the "exceptionally abled".
