Authorities arrest Olathe suspect after daylong search
OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — Police say a manhunt that caused some Olathe schools and daycare centers to be locked down has ended.
Olathe police spokesman Sgt. Logan Bonney says a suspect who eluded police for about five hours Monday was arrested about 4 p.m. without incident in a wooded area. He says at least one weapon was recovered.
Officers stopped a vehicle earlier Monday as part of an investigation. One man inside the vehicle was arrested but the other man fled.
Bonney says shots were fired but no officers were hurt.
Olathe police said four convenience stores in the city were robbed early Monday.
The suspect who fled matched the description of one of the robbery suspects but Bonney said police could not confirm whether he was involved in the armed robberies.
