MN Fugitive In Nebraska 16 Apr 12

A wanted fugitive from Henderson has been arrested in western Nebraska. Authorities say that 44-year-old Michael Ray Rannow was taken from his van in a parking lot just south of Interstate 80 in North Platte on Wednesday night. Nebraska agencies had been notified about Minnesota’s warrants for Rannow and that he was likely using I-80 to travel either to or from Denver. An officer then spotted the van Rannow was using parked near two truck stops, and a search warrant was obtained before officers broke the van windows and seized Rannow. He remains in custody, pending proceedings to return him to Sibley County. The charges against him there include sexual assault and failure to register as a sex offender.
