Las Vegas fugitive could be in Incline

William Ferchland and Susan Wood, Tahoe Daily Tribune

The Las Vegas division of the FBI seeks the public’s help in locating a fugitive known to have frequented Incline Village.

Leonard Weston Ramey Jr., 46, is wanted in Clackamas County, Ore., for racketeering, money laundering, security fraud and aggravated theft.

Ramey apparently approaches victims with claims of wealth from growing securities investments and persuades interested people to turn over thousands of dollars to him for the same reason.

The 56-year-old man is also known as Ken Dwight, Kenneth Walden, Eric Radclif, Ron Radcliff, Hafoc Yates, Ronald Hollisen and Ron Henderson.

Ramey is identified as a white male, with gray hair, weighing 190 pounds and almost 6 feet tall.

The FBI urges anyone with information on Ramey to contact the Carson City Resident Agency of the FBI at (775) 882-1248 between 8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m. or on a 24-hour line at (702) 385-1281.
