Man featured on TV show arrested in Alabama

TUSCALOOSA, AL (AP) - Authorities say a man featured on the television show America's Most Wanted has been arrested in Alabama.

Willie Henry Lorick, 31, was taken into custody in Tuscaloosa Wednesday night.

Lorick is a suspect in what authorities called a four-month "serial bump and rob" spree in Palm Beach, Florida.

Authorities say Lorick and other suspects who were arrested last year are accused of bumping other drivers in traffic and robbing them at gunpoint when they exited their vehicles.

Lorick was featured on America's Most Wanted on Friday.

It was not immediately known Thursday whether Lorick has an attorney in the case.
