Alleged elusive carjacking suspect Seiber hospitalized at St. Luke's

BOISE, Idaho. (KBOI) - A Nampa carjacking suspect who police say led them on a manhunt from Nampa to rural Montana has been hospitalized.

Ken Day, St. Luke's Regional Medical Center spokesman, said Rodney Seiber is hospitalized, but he was unable to say why or what condition he's in.

Seiber started making regional news Sept. 18 when officials say he threatened a welding supply company employee in Nampa at knifepoint.

He fled into a cornfield and disappeared. Ten days later, he was arrested in an outbuilding near Garryowen on Montana's Crow Indian Reservation after fleeing Montana law enforcement officers for three days.

When he was brought back to the Treasure Valley, however, Seiber managed to allegedly escape a private security transport team near the Boise Stage Stop on Interstate 84. He was on the run for about an hour before being captured again.
