SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A man whose face appeared on billboards in the Salem Police Department’s 10 Most Wanted List was arraigned Wednesday in Marion County Court.

Ricky Scott Exe Jr., 33, is facing charges of burglary, bank robbery, carjacking and possessing cocaine and heroin. The Statesman Journal reports he was arrested Friday in Portland.

Police had asked the public to help look for the 33-year-old after a burglary last month in which firearms were taken.

Exe is suspected of stealing firearms during a home burglary on either June 13 or June 14 in the 4600 block of 32nd Avenue SE. On June 15, he is suspected of using a shotgun to carjack a 2002 Ford Expedition at Lancaster Drive and Sunnyview Road NE.

On July 5, Exe is accused of robbing Maps Credit Union on 1900 Hines Street SE. The suspect in the robbery fled in a Ford Expedition. That vehicle, which was found abandoned, was the same one carjacked in June.
