Jones Co. Most Wanted Men Behind Bars

Posted: Updated:

Two of Jones County's most wanted men are now behind bars with their bond revoked.

Justice Court Judge David Lyons explained today that someone who commits a felony while out on bond for another felony meets the requirements for bond revocation, as two men found out today.

Ralston Sicklier Keyes, 29, of Taylorsville was arrested Oct. 30 for various drug and weapons charges.

"Whenever deputies went to arrest the female that was with him, he managed to slip the cuffs and get to the front, got the handcuffs off and escaped into a wooded area," JCSO Investigator Jared Lindsey explained. 

A man-hunt began that night, and police warned he could be dangerous.

"Every time we've come across him, we've known him to be armed," Lindsey said. "He had an assault riffle the night that he escaped custody."

Finally a tipster lead police to a casino in Gulfport where he was hiding.  Keyes tried to escape but police quickly apprehended him.

"Did you do what they're accusing you of?" We asked him.

"Yes ma'am," Keyes replied.

But another suspect in a separate case, Paul Marsh, 31, of Ellisville had a different answer when asked the same question.

"Not that I know of," Marsh told reporters. 

When police tried to arrest him after repeated calls about him dealing drugs in the Pendorff area, he wasn't home.

"He got word that we came to his house, and he's been ducking and hiding since them," Lindsey said.

Thursday, police found him parked on the side of Pauldin Road in possession of methanphedamine, oxycodon and three fire arms that had been stolen from Leaf River Sports weeks ago.

"They will not give me no rehab help, and I need it badly," Marsh claimed.  "I've got a bad back, and drugs keep me mellowed out."

"He very easily could've sought out different kinds of help," Lindsey responded.  "We would've helped him, but he continued to sell drugs, possess drugs and ruin people's lives, so we have to do what we have to do."

Lindsey said in both cases, the sheriff's dept. depended on tips from the public, and he is grateful to everyone who helped.

Marsh is reportedly being cooperative with the investigation process, so Lindsey expects more arrests from his circle of friends.
