ANOKA, Minn. (WCCO) – A Minneapolis man who fled a deputy’s custody before he was to be booked into the Anoka County Jail Wednesday is back in custody.
The sheriff’s office says the man, 30, was handcuffed when he ran away outside of the jail in downtown Anoka.
Crews from multiple agencies, including a K-9 unit, responded to the Main Street area to search for the man. People in the area were advised to remain indoors so as not to interfere with the search.
Police announced at about 5:10 p.m. that “the man is in custody and there is no threat to the public.”
Anoka is located roughly 20 miles north of Minneapolis.
