Fugitive Recaptured in Festus; Additional Charges May Be Pending

ST. LOUIS (KTRS) St. Louis County Police say fugitive Bruce Brutsman is back in custody, days after he escaped from a hospital where he’d been taken after he supposedly swallowed a battery. Brutsman had been considered armed and dangerous. Police found him in Festus Wednesday hours after they located the car he’d used to escape in north St. Louis. The vehicle was unoccupied when police located it near Interstate 70 and the foot of a bridge to Illinois.

According to County Police Information Officer Benjamin Granda, the tips they received from the public were important.

He says police are gathering information to give to the prosecutor to determine whether additional charges will be filed against Brutsman.
