Suspect Facing Nearly a Dozen New Charges After Reportedly Skipping Court Dates

Dubuque Police this week finally caught up to a suspect who’s accused of skipping court dates ever since his arrest on theft and forgery charges late last year. 24-year-old Tanner Ramaker now faces eleven new charges for failing to appear for court dates and violating his pretrial supervision agreements. At about at about 7:20 Tuesday night, an officer spotted Ramaker walking near the intersection of 20th and Jackson Streets. The officer verified that Ramaker had outstanding warrants before detaining him. While questioning Ramaker, the officer saw Ramaker drop a clear baggie. The contents later tested positive for marijuana, and Ramaker was charged with possession. Ramaker was initially arrested last December on charges of forgery and theft. A bench warrant for his arrest had been issued in early July.
