POPLAR BLUFF, MO - A man described as a "dangerous fugitive" was arrested this morning in Poplar Bluff.
Authorities say 31-year-old Bradley Fortner is wanted by the FBI and local police agencies in several states for a string of bank robberies and armed robberies.
Officers say an employee at Costello's Restaurant in Poplar Bluff heard a suspicous noise in the attic of the business. The employee then called police, and that's where they found Fortner hiding.
After a two hour standoff, police talked Fortner into giving himself up without further incident. Police say Fortner initially gave them a false name, but later told them his true identity.
