A manhunt on Mauna Kea came to an end Tuesday evening when a suspected carjacker was taken into custody.

Jeremy Todd Rios, 31, was arrested at 6:30 p.m. on Mauna Kea Access Road, more than six hours after he was reported seen in a stolen car near the Mauna Kea Visitors Center after allegedly fleeing from police.

The search prompted the closure of the access road to visitors around noon.

Police say the incident began when Rios, of Hilo, committed several crimes in city’s downtown district and fled to Mauna Kea in a stolen car.
