Georgia Navy deserter found in Sheridan

SHERIDAN — A man wanted on a federal warrant for deserting the Navy was arrested by police in Sheridan Monday.

Keyarius Storey, 29, was located in the community after police received a tip he was wanted.

Sheridan Police Sgt. Travis Koltiska said the warrant for Storey was issued Feb. 11 of last year by the U.S. Navy Absentee Collection Center. Because the Sheridan detention center is not contracted to house federal prisoners, Storey was transported to the detention center in Buffalo. Detention officers there confirmed Tuesday morning Storey was no longer in their custody, but did not clarify whether he was released to another agency or into the public population.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Navy Personnel Command indicated Storey had listed his home of record in Stockbridge, Ga., and had enlisted in the Navy in September of 2009. He was assigned to the USS Carl Vinison, which was his first duty station after completing his military basic training and two job schools. He is reported to have left his post in 2013.
