OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Authorities say a man suspected in the robberies of banks in Oklahoma City and Tulsa last month has been arrested in western Oklahoma.

The FBI says David Louis Siany was taken into custody without incident on eastbound Interstate 40 in Beckham County Tuesday afternoon.

The 51-year-old Siany is accused of robbing a Bank of America branch in south Tulsa on January 22 and of hitting a BancFirst branch in south Oklahoma City on January 27.

He was recently released from prison after serving time for robbing banks in Edmond, Oklahoma City and in Minnesota.

Federal officials say Siany's son called authorities after recognizing his father in media reports after the Oklahoma City robbery.
