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

   The Tuscaloosa News reports (http://bit.ly/Rk0DTt) that 31-year-old Willie Henry Lorick 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 County.

   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. According to America's Most Wanted Lorick was the last of 5 suspects in the bump and rob cases still on the loose.

   He faces thirty two counts of robbery, kidnapping, grand theft and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He will be returned to South Florida to face those charges.

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