PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Deputy U.S. marshals have arrested a man accused of breaking into one of their unmarked cars in Portland and stealing a vest full of gear that included a knife, radio, ammunition and a Taser.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/Mnof9m ) that the U.S. Marshals Service says 33-year-old Mark Wicklund was arrested Friday night in Portland.

Wicklund is suspected of stealing the property on Dec. 16.

Investigators say they learned that Wicklund was a convicted felon and wanted as a fugitive for attempting to elude police.

While searching Wicklund’s home, investigators say they found several guns. Federal authorities have accused him of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
