— A man wanted in the theft of $80,000 from Brink's in Texas was arrested in Perry, authorities said.

The FBI called Perry police warning them a man was driving north on Interstate 35 toward Perry in a tractor-trailer with a flatbed trailer loaded with round bales of hay, said Perry Police Chief Brian Thomas. Agents told officers the man was armed and wanted for embezzlement in Texas.

A Perry police officer spotted the rig Monday, and police arrested driver Jason Chance, 38, of Sweeney, Texas.

FBI agents picked up Chance from the Noble County jail Tuesday morning to take him back to Texas, Thomas said. FBI Special Agent Rick Rains said he did not have details in the Texas case.
