The body of 18-year-old Brittany Clardy was found in a car in a Columbia Heights impound lot Feb. 21, eight days after the car had been towed from Brooklyn Park. Family and friends have said she left her St. Paul home Feb. 11 and never returned.
Authorities plan to release more information Thursday afternoon.
Sheriff’s officials say authorities arrested the suspect Wednesday, after executing search warrants in Woodbury and Brooklyn Park. The man was wanted on several warrants out of Georgia, including allegations of criminal sexual conduct, kidnapping, assault and false imprisonment.
