Man arrested for meth on Christmas

A Carson City man was arrested shortly after midnight Christmas morning after he was pulled over for having an expired license plate.

Camron Murray Lewis, 32, was on Highway 88 at the intersection with Highway 395 when a deputy learned the plate was expired. When the deputy spoke to Lewis he seemed fidgety. A routine background check revealed he was on probation. The deputy obtained permission to search Lewis’ truck and found a pouch with a glass pipe inside.

Lewis admitted smoking methamphetamine earlier in the day. Lewis is scheduled to appear in East Fork Justice Court this morning.

■ A Gardnerville man was taken into custody on Christmas after he was accused of punching holes in the walls of a home he was staying at in the Gardnerville Ranchos.

Roman Fanter, 24, was arrested after two men he was living with said he woke them up at 2 a.m. when he came home intoxicated. The men told deputies Fanter started arguing with them, and they were trying to get him to go to bed. At one point he entered one of the rooms and tried to take a loaded shotgun out of a case, but the men took it away from him. Then he kneed a hole in the wall by the bedroom, headbutted a hole in the hall door, and broke a 6-foot oak table.

Fanter had left the apartment, but was located not far away sitting in a greenbelt.

Fanter was involved in a similar instance on Centerville last spring. He is scheduled to appear in East Fork Justice Court this morning.
