MINNESOTA LAKE, Minn. (KTTC) -- A carjacking suspect who eluded authorities after a standoff in Austin last month has been arrested.
Deputies arrested Thomas Kendricks III, 23, on Friday just south of Mankato.
Faribault County Sheriff Mike Gormley says a SWAT team entered the building where Kendricks has been hiding out and arrested him. No charges have been filed yet.
Deputies also found a 14-year-old girl with the suspect who has been missing from the Mankato area since late January. The sheriff says the girl was not harmed.
Police searched a home in the 1100 block of 8th Street Northwest in Austin, after a nine-hour standoff, but Kendricks had eluded them.
