Snow leads deputies straight to a burglary bust

Monday, January 21, 2008

Sac County Sheriffs deputies arrested Jeremeh Lee Kretlow, 32, of Schaller for a home burglary Wednesday night - with an assist from Mother Nature


The burglary was reported in the 400 block of Dundas Street in Schaller around 11:20. Officers simply followed the footprints left in the fresh snow at the scene, right to the door of 306 South Berlin Street. A search there turned up stolen cash, jewelry, a digital camera and electronics, officers said.

Kretlow was jailed on $26,987 bond for a felony burglary charge. He was also wanted in Buena Vista County for outstanding drug possession and burglary charges.
