Bo Dukes taken into custody after national manhunt

- A national manhunt for Bo Dukes, one of the Georgia men accused in connection with the death of Tara Grinstead, ended Saturday, according to authorities. 

Officials say the 34-year-old Dukes was wanted for rape and kidnapping in a separate case that happened on New Year's Day at his Warner Robbins home.

Warner Robbins police say Dukes kidnaped two women in Bonaire earlier this week, brought them to his home, and then raped them at gunpoint.

The case was handed over to U.S. Marshals and Warrants Division.

Police said they're held out on releasing too much information because they believe Dukes may have been following updates on TV.

Authorities previously charged Dukes of helping conceal the body of former Georgia beauty queen and high school teacher Grinstead back in 2015.

He is now wanted for rape, aggravated sodomy, false imprisonment, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Dukes is being held in the Irwin County Jail.
