Bryan Kohberger was pulled over twice on his road trip from Washington state to Pennsylvania.

Bryan Kohberger and his father were pulled over by Indiana State Police on December 15, just days after Moscow police asked the public for help locating a white Hyundai Elantra.

Police said Kohberger was pulled over for tailgating.


However, it has been revealed that the FBI asked the Indiana State Police to pull Kohberger over to get images of his face and hands.

Fox News reported:

A Federal Bureau of Investigation surveillance team tracked Idaho quadruple murder suspect Bryan Kohberger and his father on a cross-country road trip from Washington State to Pennsylvania and asked Indiana police to pull him over, a law enforcement source told Fox News.

The law enforcement source told Fox News that the FBI surveillance team was seeking video images of Kohberger as well as his hands.

Bryan Kohberger and his father were pulled over twice in Indiana on Dec. 15 while making the cross-country trip.

The law enforcement source said that investigators were still building their case on Dec. 15 to make an arrest, but added that genealogy played a major role.

Bryan Kohberger arrived in Idaho Wednesday evening where he was served with an arrest warrant and booked into Latah County jail.


Idaho officials publicly released the probable cause affidavit in the case against accused killer Bryan Kohberger.

The court documents revealed a knife sheath with Bryan Kohberger’s DNA was left at the crime scene.

“The sheath was later processed and had ‘Ka-Bar’ ‘USMC’ and the United States Marine Corps eagle globe and anchor insignia stamped on the outside of it,” Idaho police officer Brett Payne wrote. “The Idaho state lab later located a single source of male DNA (suspect Profile) left on the button snap of the knife sheath.”

The killer murdered the victims around 4:17 am, according to the court documents based on testimony from one of the surviving roommates.

A nearby surveillance camera picked up a dog barking (Kaylee Goncalves’ dog) at 4:17 am at the same time the surviving roommates hear someone crying.
