Man found and arrested Monday after manhunt for escaping from prison

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

The hunt for the man who took hostages at the Hillary Clinton Presidential campaign office six years ago is over.

Leeland Eisenberg was arrested Monday morning after walking away from a minimum-security correctional facility in New Hampshire.

Authorities noticed Eisenberg was missing during a head count last night.

Eisenberg strapped road flares to his chest in 2007, claiming it was a bomb and held hostages at Clinton's campaign office.

In 2009, he was released from prison early but later violated his probation.

Eisenberg would have been eligible for parole in August.
