HARTFORD, Conn. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — A Fort Worth, Texas man accused of kidnapping two teenage girls in New Hampshire was arrested during a traffic stop in Connecticut on Friday, police said.

Police said Cameron Snody, 18, flew to New Hampshire to meet a 17-year-old girl he had been communicating with on a messaging app. He went to the girl’s hometown of Swanzey early Friday morning, stole a car belonging to the girl’s brother and drove her and her 15-year-old friend to New York City, New Hampshire State Police said.
