Hunt County Sheriff Deputies apprehended 29-year-old Cody Earon Keen of Royse City on October 1, 2023, for a violation related to his surety bond in connection with charges of evading arrest with a previous conviction. Keen's arrest stemmed from an initial charge on August 22 for failing to appear in court, leading to a breach of the terms of his release.
The evading arrest case dates back to June 6, 2022, while Keen was residing in Greenville. His extensive criminal record includes multiple arrests in Hunt, Collin, Rockwall, Dallas, and Ellis Counties for various offenses, such as forgery, theft, burglary, and drug possession. Notably, Keen has a history of attempting to evade law enforcement, resulting in several arrests for evading arrest and parole violations.
