Police said they received a call at about 11.55pm yesterday informing them that wanted man Michael Cope was at an address in Larch Road, Leigh.
Detective superintendent Tony Creely said:
Since Linzi was killed nearly a month ago there has been an intensive manhunt to find and arrest her killer safely.
Late last night we received intelligence which led us to an address on Larch Road in Leigh.
Armed officers attended and a 28-year-old man handed himself in to police.
Over recent weeks we have received a very positive response from the public and we thank the people of Salford, Hindley and Leigh for their co-operation and support.
