The California Highway Patrol office in Mount Shasta has released the identity and more details regarding a man who remains at large as of Friday morning, May 15, after extensive law enforcement search efforts Thursday afternoon.
Officer Jeff Borgen of the CHP said Salvador Lopez-Ramos, age 22, of Winchester, Calif., had already been searched before he escaped, and it is known that he did not have any weapons, wallet or cell phone on his person.
Lopez-Ramos fled the scene on foot May 14 after officers stopped to check on a 2003 Toyota Corolla that was parked on the shoulder of Interstate-5 northbound at Lassen Lane at about 1 p.m., according to a CHP press release.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 5’10” to 6’, 235 pounds, wearing dark jeans and a gray and dark colored long sleeved shirt. The CHP says he was last seen on foot in the wooded area east of I-5, near Lassen Lane/Pine Street.
Officer Borgen said Lopez-Ramos had no warrants for his arrest and no weapons were found in the car.
He said “a large amount of meth” was found in the car.
The other passengers in the vehicle, Carlos David Ramirez, age 27, of Hemet, Calif., and Fransico Xavier Jaramillo, age 24, of Winchester, Calif., were arrested for possession of a controlled substance for sales and possession of crystalline methamphetamine.
