Bagley Man Apprehended After Escaping Custody
A Bagley man who escaped from police custody has been apprehended near Winger.
Polk County Sheriff’s Department officials say 20-year-old Tony Krueger was being transported to the hospital when he overpowered a deputy around 1 Wednesday afternoon and took off in a transport vehicle. Eventually, the State Patrol used a pursuit intervention technique to stop the vehicle near Winger. Krueger then ran off into a bean field. Authorities used drones and dogs to finally locate Krueger just before 8 that night and took him back into custody at that time.
Krueger was being held at the Northwest Regional Correctional Center on charges of obstruction and fleeing.
