According to a booking sheet, 38-year-old Jeramie Vanzane Lewis was booked into the Laramie County Detention Center at 3 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 19, two hours after a deputy with the Laramie County Sheriff's Office met with him at the Denver Reception and Diagnostic Center.
The deputy says Lewis had four active Laramie County warrants -- a District Court warrant for failure to appear signed on Nov. 16, 2022; a Circuit Court warrant for 13 charges and a District Court warrant for failure to comply signed on Dec. 23, 2022; and a District Court warrant for failure to appear signed on Jan. 3, 2023.
Lewis Charged With 9 Felonies, 4 Misdemeanors
Lewis was seen on the Circuit Court warrant Monday morning, Jan. 22, and charged with nine felonies -- two counts of aggravated burglary with a deadly weapon, three counts of theft, possession of methamphetamine, two counts of property destruction, and use of a firearm in a felony -- and four misdemeanors -- duty upon colliding, property destruction, fleeing/eluding, and criminal trespass.
Lewis' bond was set at $25,000 cash and his preliminary hearing was scheduled for Jan. 29 at 10:00 a.m.
Because Lewis is a habitual criminal, he'll have to serve a life sentence if convicted.
As of 3:45 p.m. Tuesday, no hearings had been set to address Lewis' District Court warrants.
