FBI, Oklahoma law enforcement arrest man in hiding since 2003 in Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY - A man who went into hiding 10 years ago after allegedly robbing a bank, two restaurants and a convenience store was arrested in Oklahoma Monday. 

Jerry Hearn was taken into FBI and custody Monday evening in Oklahoma City after being tipped off in late March, according to investigators.

Following Hearn's arrest, the 53-year-old admitted to agents he had been living as Kenneth Watson since 2003, according to bureau officials, who say Watson is an actual individual that moved away from Oklahoma the same year.

Hearn is in the Oklahoma County Jail pending Arizona extradition.
