MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities have arrested the fugitive who spent most of Friday hiding in a corn field in the north metro, according to the U.S. Marshal’s Office.

The marshal’s office said Shawn Michael Olthoff was arrested at about 8:15 a.m. Saturday at a trailer home in rural Pine County near the town of Beroun, which is just north of Pine City.

Olthoff is being held in the Ramsey County Jail on a supervised released violation. He is scheduled to appear in court on Monday and is also wanted for questioning in connection with a series of recent armed robberies.

Authorities started a massive manhunt in a corn field in the North Branch area, which was assisted by the Pine County Canine Unit and the Minnesota State Patrol.
