Thirty-two-year-old Roy Stallings is being held in the Oskaloosa County Jail.
A deputy noticed items in a car that belonged to the victim of a purse-snatching.
A man nearby, who matched the description of the purse-snatcher, identified himself as Lawrence Smith.
Checks by the deputy revealed that Smith was not his real name.
The suspect’s fingerprints later revealed his true identity, that of Stallings and the murder warrants issued out of North Carolina.
