Ingleside man wanted for sexually abusing girl captured in Wisconsin

An Ingleside man wanted for sexually abusing a teen girl, who is related to him, was captured by U.S. Marshals after they found him hiding in Wisconsin with family members.

Steven M. Klubertanz, 39, of the 35500 block of North Sunnyside Avenue in Ingleside, was arrested on Wednesday on a warrant for four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

In August, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office was notified about Klubertanz making sexual advances toward a teen girl, who he is related to, Lake County Sheriff Sgt. Christopher Covelli said.

“Following an extensive investigation, Sheriff’s Detectives determined between June and December of 2017, Klubertanz sexually abused the juvenile at their Ingleside residence,” Covelli said.

The arrest warrant for Klubertanz was issued on January 4 and the Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team began working with U.S. Marshals to apprehend Klubertanz. Authorities learned that Klubertanz was avoiding arrest by hiding with family members in Lyndon Station, Wisconsin.

U.S. Marshals conducted surveillance at the home in Lyndon Station, Wisconsin and located Klubertanz inside. He was arrested without incident and transported to the Juneau County, Wisconsin Jail where he remains held pending extradition hearings.

    I keep reading and re-reading this and it makes less sense every time. The time line is off and a relative of Covelli??? Is it something in the water?
