WEST MEMPHIS, AR - Police in West Memphis arrested at least three people wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation yesterday for their alleged roles in a bank robbery in the Dallas, Texas area, as well as other crimes, including murder.

FBI officials in Dallas and western Arkansas reportedly called West Memphis police Thursday morning to say that they had reason to believe that several people responsible for robberies in Texas were passing through the West Memphis area.

West Memphis police went to the Ramada Inn along I-40 at approximately 9:45 a.m. and took seven people into custody...three women and four men, after finding three vehicles in the hotel's parking lot that matched descriptions and licence plates of information provided by the FBI .  Three of those people have reportedly been arrested.  They are identified as 37-year-old Chuck Oliver, 23-year-old Edward Crane, and 22-year-old Darren Mack. 

Meanwhile, an additional suspect among those captured, identified as Waylon Perry, is wanted for murder in Arlington, Texas.

No other details are available at this time.
