37-year old Westwood resident Wayne Cramer, who was wanted on multiple arrest warrants for a variety of crimes, was arrested late Thursday afternoon by Lassen County Sheriff’s Deputies after they received a tip from a member of the community.

On Tuesday, Sheriff Dean Growdon asked for the public’s help in tracking down Cramer, who was known to be in Westwood.

Wednesday afternoon, according to LCSO Captain Kevin Jones, the Sheriff’s Office received information about Cramer’s location from a community member.

The tip was that Cramer was inside his residence on Delwood Street.

“Units were at his home within minutes and several personnel responded and surrounded his residence,” explained Jones.

“After attempts to call him out failed, the LCSO SWAT team responded. Several rounds of CN gas and a diversionary device were used inside the home, but Cramer was not located inside the residence or outbuilding.”

Late this afternoon, after receiving another tip from a Westwood resident, Deputies located Cramer on the lower portion of Delwood Street.

“Although Cramer ran and resisted arrest upon being caught,” said Jones. “Sgt. Mike Carney was able to subdue Cramer until other Deputies arrived.”

Cramer was arrested at 4:10p.m., booked into the Lassen County Jail and held on $237,500 bail.

“We appreciate all the information and support we received from the Westwood community to apprehend this person and the hard work by the personnel at the Sheriff’s Office,” said Jones.
