SPOKANE, Wash. -- A fugitive wanted for felonies in northeast Arkansas and Indiana was arrested in Spokane, Washington Monday afternoon after a bail bondsman tracked him using Internet sources.  Frank W. Zyzanski, 42, was arrested on Indiana warrants charging "the willful killing of a family with a weapon" and for a "threat of terrorism."  Specifics of the charges were not immediately available.

Tribble is wanted locally on charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm, terroristic threatening and criminal impersonation, according to Chief Deputy Gary Tribble of the Randolph County Sheriff's Department.

The bail bondsman who tracked Zyzanski through computer sources faxed his photos to police, who arrested him without incident.  Zyzanski was booked into the Spokane County Jail pending extradition.

Authorities say he could face additional federal charges after officers found a fraudulent Social Security number and a Medicare card in his possession.
