A 27-year-old Florida man wanted for armed robbery has been captured after fleeing a traffic stop in Mississippi.

Rankin County sheriff's deputies arrested Stephan Bibb Friday morning after a caller told officials a man matching his description had walked out of a wooded area to a road. Bibb is being held at the Rankin County jail.

Police stopped Bibb on Interstate 20 east of Jackson Thursday, and found he was driving a car stolen from Crestview, Fla.

Bibb fled, leading authorities on a car chase through Rankin County. Bibb abandoned his car at a dead end and fled on foot. Authorities conducted a broad search, including searching vehicle trunks at roadblocks.

Two men and one woman who were riding with Bibb were also arrested.
