TACOMA — A fugitive has been arrested after federal agents saw his photo in a story featuring a low-budget horror movie in The Olympian.

The News Tribune reports that 44-year-old Jason Stange plays a leading role in the movie, “Marla Mae.” The Olympian 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.
