Update: Man Arrested in NLR Search

Update:
NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The subject of an hours-long manhunt is now in custody.

The search had begun around 3 p.m. in North Little Rock near Maumelle for a man who federal officials were reportedly trying to serve with a warrant when he ran from them.

Just after 5:30, the North Little Rock Police Department said the search had been suspended.

Then, about an hour later, police said the individual was in custody.

Our crew on the scene said he was found in an area of high grass along a road just off Counts Massie Road. 

Update:

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A manhunt has been suspended after a search that lasted for a couple of hours on Wednesday afternoon.

Despite the subject of the search still not having been located, the North Little Rock Police Department says there is no immediate threat to the public safety.

Moments before we learned of the search being suspended a Code Red Alert was received by a member of our staff who lives in Maumelle, which stated the following:
"Message from City of Maumelle. NLRPD is searching for an armed Hispanic male who fled on foot toward the CC of Ark. Blue and gray plaid shirt, brown shorts. Call 911 immediately if seen."

The NLRPD says the search had focused on the The Links at the Rock apartment complex not far from a Walmart superstore.
