Recommended Posts

DES MOINES, Iowa — A stolen tow truck from Minnesota was found at an Iowa auto shop where police say a Fergus Falls, Minn., man was killed during an attempted burglary.


Police said the truck was taken from Beyer's Towing in Fergus Falls early Sunday morning, July 8. The truck, which has company logos on the side, was found Wednesday morning at Kraft 5-Star Muffler in Des Moines.


The muffler shop owner is accused of fatally shooting 37-year-old Amund Haarstad of Fergus Falls just before the truck was found.


Thomas Kraft, 67, has yet to face any charges.


Court records show Haarstad has a lengthy criminal past with charges dating back to 1999.

He HAD a lengthy record. My prayers go out to Mr. Kraft. Taking a life is a soul searching endeavor,.......... but you have to protect what you have. People work to hard to just allow themselves to be victims.
