OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) - Oregon Police have arrested the man they believe is responsible for a string of robberies in several cities.
Oregon Police stopped the man in a car this morning, he then took off on foot. Still, Oregon Police were able to arrest Jordan Krueger, 22, of Perrysburg, Thursday morning. He did not have a weapon on him when police took him into custody.
The most recent was at adult bookstore X-Spot on Woodville Road in Oregon Thursday morning around 5. His arrest came shortly after that incident.
Police found Krueger's maroon Ford Fusion parked on Mahala. A tipster told police he spotted the suspect walking down another street, where police ultimately found him.
Additionally, police had asked for the public's help identifying a suspect caught on surveillance video during a robbery at the Twice But Nice consignment shop on Alexis Road in west Toledo. He demanded money saying he was carrying a gun and a knife, then made off with the cash register. Chief Navarre said they believe this man is also responsible for that robbery.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Office was looking for Krueger in connection with three robberies, including the Saturday robbery of a 76-year-old woman who was planting flowers at Whiteford Cemetery in Whiteford Township. Detectives said he also stole cash registers from the Gap outlet and Subway stores in Monroe Township.
According to police, he was committing the robberies to fuel a drug problem.
"It's a huge burden for law enforcement to deal with the types of crimes related to drug habits, and this is a perfect example," said Oregon Police Chief Mike Navarre.
Krueger is now locked up in the Lucas County Jail, facing at least five different charges for all the incidents.
