Sonora, CA — A wanted Sacramento man has been arrested in Sonora.
30-year-old Jeremy Nessi had been arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. On his court date, Nessi fled a Sacramento Courtroom when he learned that he would be remanded to custody.
A felony warrant was issued for his arrest. Over the weekend, the Sacramento District Attorney’s Office requested that the Sonora Police Department check a residence on Barretta Street for Nessi. The suspect was not there, but he was later spotted by an officer in the area of Shepherd Street.
An officer searched Nessi’s car and located methamphetamine and a methamphetamine smoking pipe. Nessi was booked into Tuolumne County Jail. He now faces additional charges of felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
