EUGENE, Ore. – Police say a man wanted for three bank robberies in Eugene, Ore., has been arrested in Illinois — and it turns out he is a bit of a TV star.

Police in East Peoria, Ill., say they arrested 23-year-old Joshua Tel Warner early Thursday on the Oregon bank robbery warrant after a vehicle he was riding in was pulled over for a routine traffic stop.

He was held on $30,000 bail in the Tazewell County Jail

Eugene police say he is the same Josh Warner who appeared as a greenhorn deckhand on the king crab fishing boat Wizard in the Discovery Channel show “Deadliest Catch.”

The warrant charges him with one bank robbery in 2007 and two in 2009.
