BRINKLEY, ARKANSAS -- Two Mississippi fugitives were taken into custody Saturday afternoon by Arkansas State Troopers and a U.S. Marshal.
Cody A. Eggemeyer, 26, and Michael D. Manis, 33, were arrested without incident about 3:15 PM outside the Crown Inn at 306 North Main Street, Brinkley.
Both men are wanted in connection with a crime spree that began Christmas Day and continued into the next day involving crimes of kidnapping, home invasion, robbery and gunfire directed at police officers in Sardis and Batesville, Mississippi. The two are also suspected of an armed robbery in West Helena, Arkansas on December 26th.
The Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division is continuing to work with Mississippi and federal authorities in an investigation involving both Eggemeyer and Manis.
