Kreutz funeral set for Monday

By KWMU staff

St. Louis – A funeral for 54-year-old Roger Kreutz will be held Monday.

Kreutz died Wednesday, two days after he tried to stop two people from stealing a tip jar containing about $5 from a Starbucks coffee shop in Crestwood.

Kreutz chased the young man and woman to the parking lot, where police say they ran him over with their car.

Both Starbucks and an anonymous donor are offering a $20,000 dollar reward for information leading to the suspects.

They were driving a white 1990s Ford Taurus.

Anyone with information should call St. Louis CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS.
