He was wanted for questioning in multiple residential burglaries and possession of a stolen vehicle.
Krueger’s last address was in the 20000 block of Tuetken Road in Jerseyville.
Sheriff Ringhausen said now the judicial process will begin and eventually, Krueger will be tried on this side of the river.
“We are very happy U.S. Marshals got him in custody in St. Louis,” he said. “We can’t thank them enough. He seemed to have an almost ‘catch me if you can philosophy.’ People’s last hope of safety is their home and when you violate the sanctity of someone’s home, a person doesn’t feel safe anymore. It is up to us to ensure things like that don’t happen.”
