Nampa carjacking suspect arrested in Montana

BILLINGS, Mont. -- A man wanted in connection with a carjacking in Nampa last week has been arrested in Big Horn County, Montana, according to the Nampa Police Department.

Officials say Rodney Seiber of Nampa was found in an outbuilding at a Hardin, Montana area farm, and says that he was found tired and ready to give up.

Police say Seiber had stolen a 4-wheeler and drove it off a ravine before running on foot again.

Around 5:30 Wednesday night, a dog and search team had tracked Seiber to the outbuilding and he was taken into custody.

Earlier Wednesday, The Billings Gazette reported Little Big Horn College in Crow Agency was on lockdown Wednesday afternoon after Seiber was believed spotted on the Crow Indian Reservation.

College President David Yarlott said he ordered the lockdown at 2 p.m., but was lifting it about an hour later after authorities said the suspect had moved south of town. The lockdown affected about 200 students.

Officials have been looking for 36-year-old Rodney Seiber since Sept. 18 when he allegedly threatened a welding supply company employee before taking a company van. Seiber disappeared into a cornfield after the van crashed.

He fled officers in Hardin on Monday after a motel called in a trespassing complaint. His female companion, 18-year-old Brittany Robbins, was arrested at the scene.

Seiber has been booked into the Big Horn County Jail on misdemanors out of Montana, and the robbery warrant out of Canyon County.
