FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A 36-year-old Fairbanks man sought in manhunt earlier this month has been arrested and charged with burglary and other counts.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (https://is.gd/YtQgnI) says Brandon Barron was arrested last week after a traffic stop for moving and equipment violations.

Alaska State Troopers say Barron was the driver of a vehicle that went into a ditch Jan. 8 after a local resident accused him of stealing fuel.

Authorities say Barron ran off and broke into a home where he stole money, two guns and a snowmobile.

A ground and helicopter search failed to locate him.

Barron was arrested Thursday. He is charged with felony burglary, theft and driving with a suspended driver’s license.

It’s unclear if Barron has an attorney. He is being held on $20,000 bail.
