MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - A man is jailed in a series of thefts that led to a nearly four-hour lockdown at Kansas State University.

WIBW-TV reports that Riley County police arrested the 20-year-old Manhattan man Wednesday night. He is being held on a $150,000 bond while officials continue to investigate.

The university lockdown began after police received several reports early Friday of an armed robbery involving several people. Riley County police said in a news release that officers got into a foot chase with a possible suspect, who was last seen running to the campus. That prompted alerts urging everyone on campus to stay indoors and those off campus to stay away. Student dormitories were locked down.

Authorities say they expect additional arrests. Anyone with information is urged to contact authorities.
