Controversial Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has been arrested in Oregon, according to 8 News NOW's Portland affiliate KOIN.

Bundy was booked in the Multnomah County jail by the FBI late Wednesday night. Bundy was en route to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon, where armed occupiers have been staged for weeks.

FBI agents surrounded the refuge for hours Wednesday evening. The Associated Press reports the occupiers are planning to turn themselves into law enforcement Thursday morning.

8 News NOW will have more information as it becomes available.
