LOS ANGELES (AP) - A kidnapping suspect from Minnesota has been arrested after leading police on a car chase into downtown Los Angeles where he escaped officers on foot.
    
FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says a fugitive task force lost track of Jesus Ramirez for a few hours before finding and arresting him at a motel in North Hollywood Thursday afternoon.
    
The task force had been tracking Ramirez, who was wanted in a kidnapping and drug case from earlier this week in St. Paul, Minn.
    
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the case involved the abduction of two people taken to a house and held while their relatives were asked to turn over methamphetamines or cash as ransom.
    
LA police began chasing Ramirez in his SUV Thursday, but he disappeared into a Broadway building.
