Ronald Eugene Cramer, 50, of Lake has been jailed for the manufacturing and delivery of marijuana.
Cramer was arrested April 10 after a joint investigation by the Clare County Sheriff’s Department and the Bay Area Narcotics Team (BAYANET) served a search warrant on his home on Alpine Drive.
Sheriff John Wilson said Deputy Ryan Schmidt started the investigation after receiving a tip about the grow operation at Cramer’s home on April 9. The CCSD asked BAYANET for their assistance. “It was good police work,” Wilson said Wednesday.
He estimated the street value of the marijuana plants at up to $200,000.
During the search nearly 200 marijuana plants and a large amount of processed marijuana was found as well as a large amount of cash, guns, motorcycles, ORVs and a snowmobile. All were seized during the investigation.
Cramer was arraigned Wednesday in 80th District Court on four counts:
Cramer’s bond was set at $40,000 cash/surety. His preliminary exam was set for April 23 at 2 p.m. He remains lodged in the Clare County Jail.
