(Moore-AP) -- A Norman minister has been charged in federal court after being arrested by FBI agents in connection with a string of bank robberies.

FBI agents arrested Warren Preston Brown of Norman after he took money from the Oklahoma Educators Credit Union in Moore.

Brown is a minister at Norman's Bible Baptist Church and lives on the property.

Court documents say Brown gave a written statement to agents admitting he tried to rob the Oklahoma Educators Credit Union and robbed five other banks in the metro.

Brown appeared before US Magistrate Valerie Couch. He was given a court-appointed attorney and ordered to return to court Tuesday.

He is charged with bank robbery.
