Zachary manhunt suspect nabbed in New Orleans
ZACHARY - The man police said prompted a wide-spread lockdown of Zachary schools earlier this month was found in the New Orleans area and arrested.
Andrew Thompson was found in Westwego, a community on the west bank of the Mississippi River, Monday night. He'd been on the run since November 3 when Zachary Police tried to pull him over.
Instead of stopping, Thompson fled leading to schools being put on lockdown. The vehicle Thompson used to flee from police for a short time had child inside. The child was safely recovered. It's not clear if Thompson was related to the child.
Thompson, who is known as "Red," may have been wanted for a home invasion before his run from the law.
