On Wednesday, March 2, 2016 at about 7:30 p.m. Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the Cher-ae Heights Casino for a report of wanted person, 34 year old Joshua Reed Keyes. Keyes was said to be gambling at the casino. Keyes is wanted for armed robbery and a felony parole warrant. Deputies arrived on scene and located Keyes. Keyes initially attempted to pull away from deputies to flee. Deputies were able to apprehend Keyes and handcuffed him without further protests. Neither Keyes nor deputies were injured during the arrest.

Deputies located 9 grams of suspected methamphetamine on Keyes’ person. A silver jaguar was later located in the parking lot by deputies. The keys to the silver jaguar were located in Keyes’ possession.

Keyes was taken to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where he was booked for robbery and his felony parole warrant. He is not eligible for bail.




  • Another shining example of a room temperature IQ.

  • only on a cold day in hellboldt.

  • Hmm…He has a silver Jaguar? That’s a car I can’t afford. He will get a wrist slap for the meth and the home invasion. Then he will drive off in that silver Jag. This makes me think that home invasion might be a good occupation or at least something to supplement income.

  • seems like this casino and bear river are a pretty common place to find wanted people…you would think that if your a wanted person, you would be smart enough to not go out gambling…On second thought…you probably wouldn’t. You can’t fix stupid

  • the casinos are full of felons, thugs and tweeker zombies,… its a great place for them to hang out, especially on a rainy day.
    i ve heard a tweeki chick say she was headded to the casino due to the rain, smoke some meth and linger around for days on end until the rain stops. she will then most likely get approached by some perv thats got a room and take full sexual advantage of her, not knowing she probably has aids or other stds,…
