FREEBORN CO., Minn. - A manhunt has come to an end in Southern Minnesota.
24-year-old Trouper Gilbertson, of Albert Lea, was taken into custody last night.
Officers had asked for the public's help in finding him yesterday.
He and an 18-year-old man were both arrested after a high speed pursuit last night that began with a gas drive-off.
The chase ended when the vehicle went off a road near Alden and into a field.
Authorities say both suspects ran, but were eventually both caught.
"The driver was located a short while later walking along the side of the road,” Freeborn County Sheriff Bob Kindler said. “The passenger, who was the person that had the warrant on him, was actually located about an hour later in an abandoned farm house not too far from the scene.”
Gilbertson had been wanted by the Albert Lea Police Department in connection with a first degree burglary case.
Both men are being held in the Freeborn County jail.
