Authorities in Dubuque and Guttenberg are looking for a burglar, who is also wanted in several other states, involving at least 11 break-ins.


The Dubuque County Sheriff posted surveillance photos of the suspect, now identified as Jeffrey Joseph Krieger.

Authorities initially determined that a man and a woman were involved in a burglary/theft at Eichman's Bar and Family Restaurant near Sageville, just north of Dubuque, in July. Krieger was identified as one of the suspects in a surveillance photo.
Krieger is also the suspect in a burglary at the Pronto Market in Guttenberg.

Further investigation revealed that Krieger was a suspect in 11 other break-ins from July to September in Houston County (MN), Mower County (MN), Winona County (MN), Morton County (ND), Burleigh County (ND), Stutsman County (ND) and Lawrence County (SD).

Krieger has seven active warrants in Minnesota, aside from the 11 newly reported incidents. He apparently targets gas stations and golf pro shops. The identity of the woman who accompanies Krieger was unknown.

Anyone with information on Krieger whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers.
