The serial robbery suspect, whose image was clearly captured during an armed robbery at an Oklahoma City convenience store last week, has been apprehended in Texas.

Law enforcement officials were quickly able to identify 46-year-old Christopher McClellan, after an image from his robbery at the EZ Mart at SE 44th St. and I-35 on Feb. 10 was posted on the internet.

On Wednesday, FBI agents in Austin, Texas arrested McClellan, but did not say how he was found.

In addition to the robbery at the EZ Mart, OKC police believe McClellan is responsible for robberies at a Moore Dollar Tree store, a Food Mart and Dollar Tree in Del City, and a Dollar General store in southeast Oklahoma City.

Police have not said if or when McClellan would be extradited back to Oklahoma.
