After nearly seven weeks on the run, suspected cop killer Eric Matthew Frein is in custody. Frein was arrested by US Marshalls Thursday when he was caught hiding in an abandoned hanger at the Pocono Mountains Municipal Airport in Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania. Frein, who was armed, was taken into custody without incident, and at least one weapon was recovered. Frein, 31, is suspected in the September 12 ambush shooting that left Cpl. Bryon Dickson dead and Trooper Alex T. Douglass wounded outside the Pennsylvania State Police barracks in Blooming Grove. The manhunt involved as many as 1,000 officers at times, some from other states, and cost several million dollars. The FBI had named him one of its Ten Most Wanted Fugitives.
