Man Allegedly Caught With Stolen Goods Near REU Building

A man from San Diego was captured after a busy two-city crime spree Monday, according to police. At 2:25PM, Anderson Police were called to the Baymont Inn for a burglary. They found ammunition in a room associated with 34-year-old Julius Keeler, and a “be on the lookout” alert was broadcast to area law enforcement. At 3:06PM the sheriff’s office got a call about someone matching kKeler’s description brandishing a gun in the Churn Creek Bottom area. At 3:30PM a vehicle was stolen from a home on Rancho Vista Road, and Keeler’s car was left behind. A Redding Police Officer was en route to a burglary call on Rancho Road when he saw Keeler hanging around the Redding Electric Utility Building off Airport Road. Keeler was detained and allegedly found with property stolen from the Rancho Road home, including a gun and $20,000 worth of jewelry. The stolen car was parked and running behind the building. The victim of the gun brandishing also identified Keeler, who was booked into jail on several charges.
