LITCHFIELD – Anthony Steven Kalland, the man Meeker County authorities had been seeking since last week, was arrested Sunday evening in rural Litchfield.

Kalland, 38, of Brainerd, is being held in the Meeker County Jail pending charges of domestic assault, felon in possession of a firearm and possession of a stolen vehicle. He also has three outstanding felony warrants out of Crow Wing, Sherburne and Renville counties.

Kalland was arrested at the same house he had fled after deputies were called Dec. 27 to a domestic situation on Meeker County Road 16 in Harvey Township.

According to a news release from Meeker County Sheriff Brian Cruze, authorities received a tip about 8 p.m. Sunday that Kalland had returned to the home, and he was taken into custody shortly before 10 p.m. without incident.

A search of the residence yielded a loaded revolver, ammunition and a small quantity of methamphetamine, according to the release.

The Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate where Kalland was after he eluded authorities Dec. 27 and who may have helped him.

Authorities had been seeking Kalland, who was considered armed and dangerous, since he had used the cover of darkness to sneak through a police perimeter and flee the house.

Cruze asked that anyone with information on Kalland’s activities to contact his office at 320-693-5400.
