FAIRBANKS- A 36-year-old Fairbanks man sought in manhunt earlier this month has been arrested and charged with burglary and other counts.

Brandon Barron was arrested last week after a traffic stop for moving and equipment violations.
Alaska State Troopers say Barron was the driver of a vehicle that went into a ditch Jan. 8 after a local resident accused him of stealing fuel.
Authorities say Barron ran off and broke into a home where he stole money, two guns and a snowmobile.
A ground and helicopter search failed to locate him.
Barron was arrested Thursday. He is charged with felony burglary, theft and driving with a suspended driver's license.
It's unclear if Barron has an attorney. He is being held on $20,000 bail.
