Tips fruitless so far in search for man accused of assaulting officers
By Rob Moore Editor
CLARKESVILLE – The Habersham County Sheriff’s Office hopes someone can help them locate the man who used a truck to ram a county-owned vehicle occupied by two investigators Monday night in the Fairview Community.
Major Rick Salemi, chief investigator for the sheriff’s office, said Friday afternoon that James Len Ramey, 40, remains at large and is believed to be armed.
Salemi said officers received tips, but none has led them to Ramey, who is wanted for two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer and theft by receiving a stolen vehicle, sheriff’s officials said.
Ramey is known to frequent the Cleveland, Helen, Gainesville, and Hiawassee areas, and officers believe he is still in the area.
Sgt. Richard Stein said Ramey, who is 6-foot-1, 210 pounds with brown eyes, is known to drive a teal green/blue Honda with black rims.
Ramey currently is on parole and is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who sees him should call 9-1-1 and provide dispatchers with a location and description, but should not approach him, Stein said.
Those with information on Ramey’s whereabouts are asked to call Habersham Dispatch at (706) 778-3911 and ask to speak with Investigator Chance Oxner or Investigator James Minutello.
