Fugitive's role in horror film leads to his arrest

— A fugitive has been arrested after federal agents saw his photo in a Washington state newspaper that ran a story about a low-budget horror movie.

The News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1JqhmOs ) that 44-year-old Jason Stange, a convicted bank robber, plays a leading role in the movie, “Marla Mae.” The Olympian newspaper ran a feature story on the film Friday with photos that showed Stange on the film set in Olympia.

Federal agents tracked down Stange and arrested him Friday at a restaurant close to the filming location.

Stange pleaded guilty to an armed bank robbery in 2006 and was given a 117-month prison sentence. A federal probation violation warrant was issued last year after Stange left a halfway house in Spokane.

The film’s producer says Stange will remain in the film, which is scheduled for release in 2016.
