ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - The Stearns County Sheriff's Office says it located a man wanted on several warrants in an interesting hiding spot.

On August 3, deputies received information that 25-year-old Devante King was at a mobile home at Bel Clare Estates in Waite Park, and was prohibited from being there by court order.

The deputies entered the home and at first couldn't locate King.

Eventually, the man was found hiding inside the refrigerator.

King was placed in handcuffs but managed to break free from deputies and was chased a few blocks before being apprehended.

King was taken to the Stearns County Jail where he was booked on his six warrants, including violation of a no-contact order and several new charges such as escape from custody.

At the jail, the sheriff's office says King refused to change into jail clothing and pepper spray was used on him.
