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.

    White trash at its finest!
    …and the fact that he was arrested at a trailer home makes it perfect. Very fitting.

      Everyone living in a trailor home is not a loser. In fact I know of some very fine upstanding people living in trailor homes. And as far as the “white trash”goes, in the United State of America a person is considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
      Shame, shame on you Jennifer T. for looking down your nose at people you don’t even know.
