Man wanted on warrants from several area counties arrested after barricading himself into home

On Sunday morning, the Clay County Sheriff’s Department joined Owen County at a home in Clay in Cass Township.  Authorities say Michael Ramirez, 26, of Poland, ran from law enforcement and was then tracked from a car accident scene in Owen County.


Ramirez barricaded himself inside of a home and eventually a deputy with the assistance of a K-9 entered the home and brought out Ramirez and another man, Steven Samora, 38, also of Poland.


Both men were charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of paraphernalia.


Ramirez is also wanted on several warrants from Clay, Putnam and Owen counties.
