Carjacking Suspect Arrested 10 Feb 14

A carjacking suspect who eluded authorities after a standoff in Austin last month was arrested in Minnesota Lake Friday afternoon. A SWAT team entered the building where 23-year-old Thomas Kendricks III had been hiding out and took him into custody. Charges have not yet been filed. Police also found a 14-year-old girl with Kendricks. She had been missing from the Mankato area since January 28th. Authorities say the girl had not been harmed. Kendricks had been wanted for armed robbery and carjacking in a case that also involved an armed standoff in Austin in January. Police searched an Austin home after a nine-hour standoff, but he had eluded them.
