RENO, NV - Reno police have arrested a man who escaped a SWAT standoff over the weekend.

Leon Munara is accused of stealing a car at gunpoint Saturday evening at a trailer park in the 6000 block of Pyramid Way.

Police tracked him to an area near 4th and Wells in Reno, where they think he was hiding inside an apartment or the stolen car. Some residents were evacuated because police figured he was armed and might be a danger.

He escaped over the weekend, but was tracked by Reno police Monday and charged with robbery.
