NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) – A Minnesota fugitive has been arrested in western Nebraska.

Police say 44-year-old Michael Rannow was taken from his van in a parking lot just south of Interstate 80 in North Platte on Wednesday night.

North Platte officer Troy Erickson says Nebraska agencies had been notified about Minnesota’s warrants for Rannow and that he likely was using I-80, headed to or from Denver.

Erickson says an officer spotted the van Rannow was using, parked near two truck stops.

Erickson says a search warrant was obtained before officers broke the van windows and got access inside to seize Rannow.

Lincoln County jail records say Rannow remains in custody, pending proceedings to return him to Minnesota. The charges there include sexual assault and failure to register as a sex offender.
