Suspect Accused of Videotaping Himself While Raping Girl Arrested

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The nationwide manhunt for Chester Stiles ended with a routine traffic stop.

Stiles has been the focus of a nationwide manhunt since police identified him as the man who videotaped himself while raping a three-year-old girl. The tape surfaced last month in the rural Nevada town of Pahrump.

Police in Henderson, Nevada, just outside Las Vegas, say Stiles was stopped Monday night for driving a car with no license plates. He also offered an expired California drivers license with a photo the arresting officer says looked "suspicious."

Officer Mike Dye says Stiles told him who he was and that he was "tired of running."

The girl, who is now seven, was located in Las Vegas, with her mother.
