College goes into lock down after Nampa carjacking suspect spotted

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Law enforcement officers in southeastern Montana continued searching Wednesday for a 36-year-old Idaho man suspected in a carjacking.

The Billings Gazette reports Little Big Horn College in Crow Agency was on lock down Wednesday afternoon after Rodney Seiber of Nampa was believed spotted on the Crow Indian Reservation.

College President David Yarlott said he ordered the lockdown at 2 p.m., but was lifting it about an hour later after authorities said the suspect had moved south of town. The lockdown affected about 200 students.

Officials have been looking for Seiber since Sept. 18 when he allegedly threatened a welding supply company employee before taking a company van. Sieber disappeared into a cornfield after the van crashed.

He fled officers in Hardin on Monday after a motel called in a trespassing complaint.
