Sources say authorities knew who they were looking for and had tracked the man as far away as Pennsylvania.
A SWAT team entered the location where he was staying to take him into custody earlier this morning.
Bryan Kohberger, of Albrightsville, Pennsylvania, appeared before a Pennsylvania judge on Friday.

On Friday, Idaho police planned to send a cleaning crew to the home where Four University of Idaho students have been mysteriously murdered.
Moscow police said there was “no timeline for completion” of the cleaning, “but property will be returned to property management upon completion”.
Roommates Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, and Xana Kernodle, and Kernodle’s friend Ethan Chapin, were stabbed to death at the girls’ off-campus home in the early hours of November 13.
Two other housemates – who police said were not suspects – survived and are likely oversleeping the killings, officials said. The survivors were on the ground floor, while the four victims were on the second and third floors.
