A man who federal authorities say is a suspect in at least 10 bank robberies over the last three months has been arrested in a small town in Oklahoma, less than 10 miles from the Arkansas border.

He's thought to have robbed banks in Missouri, Illinois, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Utah, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania, where his last robbery allegedly occurred on Sept. 10.
