A California man suspected of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend and leading police on a manhunt across three states was caught in Las Vegas, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office said.
Police said they tracked Hetzel to Henderson through a auto he allegedly stole from Mesquite, Nevada, KLAS reports.
Just before 6 p.m. on Tuesday, officers took Hetzel into custody without incident. Paris, 55, was kidnapped from Solvang, Calif. last Friday.
A woman who was allegedly kidnapped by her former boyfriend in California last week was found safe in Nevada Monday night, while the suspected kidnapper - who authorities say is risky and may be armed - remains on the run. Paris told investigators that Hetzel may have been on his way to Utah. Hetzel has previously served time in prison for possession of items used to make explosive devices, using explosive devices with the intent to terrorize, felony vandalism and criminal threats, sheriff's official said.
The two were first spotted Sunday morning at a Starbucks at McDowell and Litchfield roads in Goodyear. The woman had recently been granted a restraining order against Hetzel but it had not yet been served when she was kidnapped, authorities said.

Paris told a relative that she was coming home, called for help and was in the Henderson, Nevada area.
The two checked out of a motel in Valle, Arizona, Monday morning, the sheriff's office said. While Hetzel sped off, Paris tossed her vehicle registration out the window, which Goodyear police officers recovered. After ordering a drink and giving the name Virginia, Paris told a customer in the coffee shop that she needed help. Henderson police said that she had been abducted.
Deputies released two still frames from surveillance video that shows them checking out.
Paris' family called Santa Barbara County dispatchers and Las Vegas police to launch a search effort.
Paris was found late Monday night at a casino in Henderson. Paris was found Tuesday morning at the Railroad Pass Hotel and Casino near the Arizona-Nevada border, according to KSNV in Las Vegas.
