A felon charged with forgery in 2009 and named one of Tulsa’s Most Wanted fugitives earlier this month was arrested Thursday.
Police were tipped off to the whereabouts of Kenneth Mark Etter, 52, and arrested him without incident in the 300 block of East Third Street around 5:15 p.m., according to a news release.
He was charged with two counts of uttering a forged instrument — cashing a bad or forged check — in 2009. An arrest warrant was issued in June 2012 after Etter failed to pay a $328 bond, court records show.
Etter has been convicted for false declaration of ownership in pawn in 15 felony cases since the late 1980s.
He was incarcerated and released from prison three times between 1991 and September 2011, Department of Corrections records show. He was ordered back into DOC custody within two years of each release.
He’s also being held on drug possession and paraphernalia complaints.
His bond for the pending complaints and charges is $35,250. He owes nearly $10,000 in court costs.
