A greenhorn featured in several Deadliest Catch episodes was arrested late Wednesday because he’s a suspect in several Oregon bank robberies. Joshua Tel Warner, 23, was a short-lived deckhand on the Wizard, and his appearance on that show led police to him, although it was a traffic stop in Illinois that led to him being apprehended.
He was arrested “for three robberies at Eugene banks between October 2007 and August 2009,” the Register-Guard reports. Besides the fact that “Eugene police were completely unaware that Warner was in custody in Illinois when they held a press conference Thursday morning to announce that they were looking for him, … Eugene police had long been unable to identify Warner, let alone find him — until, that is, he joined a popular show on cable TV.” That’s when “police received calls from local people who recognized Warner.”
