  • how stupid must one be to rob a casino?

    • What do smart ones rob?

      • I’m waiting for somebody to figure out a sweet Eureka Costco robbery. I’d LOVE to know the amounts of cash that move through Costco in Eureka, especially in comparison to other Costco stores. I was in line behind a Bulgarian that looked exactly like Vladimir Putin, collar open, chain, sunglasses on in the store. Was buying a load of stuff with a wad of 20s that could choke a horse. Seems pretty normal in Eureka.

  • So is this the guy who has been robbing everyone or did he just rob the Casino?

  • What a moron. Cameras everywhere! Well, at least he can find comfort in probably getting probation through the Humboldt County court system.

  • Not so bad ass anymore.

  • He probably figured out the Mob was after him. They don’t put up with getting robbed, and it’s my opinion they run most of the “Indian” Casinos, as evidenced by the many “consultants” from Las Vegas around those places.

  • If this IS the guy who’s been robbing all the local stores then it only shows how lax our law enforcement is here; spend weeks robbing one local store and hotel after another, firing a gun at two of the robberies, and nothing happens to you. Hit a casino and cops are at your front door within hours.

  • I bet the next guy arrested for the string of brazen armed robbery s is a man of color .Just sayin that is if ,and when they catch the perp .could be tomarrow .doubt it the perp in this story wanted to get caught he don’t look drugged out.eather no pic marks

  • 200k bail how bout that 16k and he’s out and running you’d think that bail would be a little higher for armed robbery.

  • According to his Facebook account, he is employed by Blue Lake Casino and an HSU mentor! I’m sure BLC frowns on their employees robbing another casino!

  • I know him from class and I really just don’t see him doing this.

  • Must have taken a business class with you. Skip working hard to own his own business. May have bought stock in stop and rob…. the lead investor. Lol

  • Aubrey and I are friends. I’m actually so shocked to see this. He’s a wonderful man that looks out for his friends and family. This would be extremely out of character for him. He was wanting to join the army in January and this would screw up any chance of that for him. I hope this was a huge misunderstanding. I love you Aubrey and I wish you the very best

    • @victoria I am so happy I saw your comment because I was really sad about all the other ones. I had a few classes with him and he is someone that totally lights up a room. He has so many friends and all the teachers love him. He’s smart and funny. I really hope it is a misunderstanding as well.

  • I know Aubrey as well. Aubrey is a square and goofball who wouldnt steal money if he found it on the sidewalk. Im confident that the Sherrifs arrested him to save face and hoped they could bully him into confessing. Racist sons of bitches.
