On Sunday, August 5th, 2018 at 6:21 PM, deputies assigned to the Soboba Casino and Hemet Station responded to the casino in response to a request from casino security. Prior to their arrival a records check was conducted, and it was learned Kenneth Biggs, 38 years, who resides in Blythe had an outstanding felony warrant for his arrest.
As deputies approached the casino Biggs ran out of the casino and into the parking lot. The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department helicopter assisted deputies in locating and arresting Biggs in a near by dirt field without incident.
Biggs was booked into Riverside County on his outstanding warrant. Continued Investigation revealed Biggs to be a sex registrant out of compliance. Follow up was conducted in furtherance of Biggs failing to register in Blythe and the Hemet / San Jacinto area.
Additional charges are being pursued against Biggs.
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is committed to the safety of the community and will be vigilant in investigating all crimes of this nature. Moreover, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is committed to continual cooperation with the Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians.
The investigation is ongoing, and we are reaching out to the public and asking anyone with information about this incident to contact Deputy Tully at the Hemet Sheriff’s Station at 951-791-3400 or the Riverside County Sheriff’s Dispatch Center at 1-800-950-2444.
