CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Police have identified a man they say was involved in a standoff that temporarily closed Interstate 25 in central Wyoming.

K2 Radio reports (https://bit.ly/2rXHheO ) the standoff ended around 2 a.m. Sunday with the arrest of 34-year-old Christopher Eads at a transmission shop in Casper. Police weren’t saying Monday what Eads was charged with and what led to the standoff, and it wasn’t clear if Eads had an attorney.

Traffic signs along I-25 warned of an “armed fugitive” and told motorists not to pick up hitchhikers. Glenrock police asked locals to stay inside and lock their doors Saturday.

Arrested in Glenrock was 25-year-old Santana Grace Keener.

The Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation says the two took part in several crimes including drug violations, robbery, burglary and aggravated assault.
