Man sought by sheriff’s office arrested

Update Thursday, Oct. 5: After being wanted by the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office and a tip from a community member, Wayne Cramer, 37 of Westwood, is in custody.

On Tuesday, Oct. 3, The Lassen County Sheriff’s Office issued a statement requesting public assistance in finding Cramer.

Cramer was wanted on multiple arrest warrants for a variety of crimes, including, conspiracy, battery on a cohabitant, violation of a domestic violence restraining order, terrorist threats and failure to appear, according to a statement released by the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office.

Cramer has consistently evaded law enforcement on recent attempts to bring him into custody. The statement said it is unknown if Cramer was armed, but noted he had an extensive history of violence and should be considered dangerous.

At about 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 4, the sheriff’s department received information saying Cramer was inside his Delwood Street residence, and within minutes, deputies were at the home.

According to an updated statement, after attempts to call Cramer out failed, the deputies surrounding the residence deployed several rounds of CN gas and a diversionary device inside the home; however, Cramer was not located inside the residence or the outbuilding.

The next day, around 4:10 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 5., a tip from a community member led to Cramer’s arrest.

The tip led deputies to find Cramer at a lower portion of Delwood Street, and although Cramer initially ran from law enforcement and resisted, Sergeant Mike Carney was able to subdue the suspect until additional deputies arrived.

He was booked into the Lassen County Jail in lieu of $237,500.

The sheriff’s office noted its appreciation for all the information provided by the Westwood community.
