An Idaho fugitive arrested Wednesday night in Big Horn County after leading authorities on a three-day manhunt through the county probably will not face any charges there.

According to the Big Horn County Attorney's Office, Rodney Seiber, 36, remains in custody at the county jail there and is being held without bond on an Idaho warrant.

That warrant stems from a carjacking in Nampa, Idaho.

Seiber will make a court appearance on Wednesday for an extradition hearing, which will determine the process of returning him to Idaho to face charges there.

The manhunt in Big Horn County, which began Monday after he was spotted in the Hardin area, involved local, state, tribal and federal authorities and prompted lockdowns of schools in Crow Agency on Wednesday.

Authorities found Seiber hiding in an outbuilding in Garryowen on Wednesday evening.
