FARMINGTON, Wis. -

Sheriff's deputies have captured a registered sex offender who was the subject of a manhunt in eastern Wisconsin.

Deputies spotted 38-year-old Larry Arnold between a wooded area and a field in Washington County and arrested him late Thursday morning.

Arnold was wanted on several warrants in Wood County and wasn't in compliance with the sex offender registry. He disappeared Saturday night, abandoning a car on a hiking trail near Kettle Moraine State Forest.

On Wednesday afternoon, authorities learned Arnold had been breaking into homes and started a search. Kewaskum-area residents were told to lock their doors during the manhunt.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Arnold could race additional charges for the home break-ins.
