OKLAHOMA CITY -- The FBI, postal inspector and Oklahoma City police have arrested a man who robbed the post office downtown on Christmas Eve.

Witnesses said the man waited in line for all the customers to leave. He walked up to the counter and passed the postal worker a note that read, "Take all the money out of the drawer and place it on the counter. I have a gun."

The worker first asked if the man was serious. When the robber said yes, the worker complied, giving the robber cash and money orders worth more than $585. The man then ran out of the post office.

Charlie Thigpen with the US Postal Inspector's Office said Ronald Dean Dougan was arrested Monday, December 27, after he willingly turned himself into police. Dougan now faces federal charges stemming from the robbery.
