A man arrested following a 12 hour manhunt that took police to Madison is scheduled to face a judge on Tuesday.

Police took Francis Sumner into custody on Friday.

They called him an "armed and dangerous" fugitive from both Missouri and Ohio.

They said he was wanted for a carjacking in Ohio and a probation violation in Missouri.

He was charged with interfering with an officer, first-degree larceny and being a fugitive from justice.

He was held without bond.

Police said that after the carjacking, he drove to Michigan and stole a Winnebago. The Winnebago was what was spotted in Madison.

They said it was with the help of eyewitnesses that they zeroed in on Sumner's location, which was Suffolk Drive in Madison.

Someone notified the Madison Police Department of a suspicious vehicle and person.

As a result, the neighborhood was locked down by officials.

With the help of police from Clinton, Guilford, East Haven, North Haven, Branford, North Branford, Waterford, the Water Authority, the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, Old Saybrook and state police, the suspect was detained.

Madison Emergency Medical Service, the North Madison Volunteer Fire Company and the Department of Homeland Security also assisted.

Sumner is due in New Haven Court at 9 a.m.
