Centralia Police make arrest in crimes against former city manager 

Centralia Police have arrested a 34-year-old Centralia man in connection with multiple felony offenses, including several where the alleged victim was former City Manager Dan Ramey.

Centralia Police Chief Greg Dodson says Blake Miller of Arlene Drive was arrested on Friday in a truck he had allegedly stolen from Ramey while it was parked at his business, the Centralia Home Center.    In addition to possession of a stolen vehicle, Miller was also charged with motor vehicle burglary for allegedly entering the truck on June 21st.   Miller also faces a fraud charge for allegedly gaining access to Ramey’s online Dominos Pizza account and ordering $90 in pizza.  Police say Miller never received the pizza after Ramey alerted Dominos he had not placed an order.

Miller also has been arrested in connection with two residential burglaries that occurred in April.  One was at a home in the 1200 block of Hester Street where an iPod, jewelry and medication were reportedly taken.  The other was at a home in the 500 block of North Beech where personal documents and a check were reportedly taken.

Miller was also arrested for harassment through an electronic device for allegedly posting a pornographic video of a woman without her permission.

In addition to the five new charges, Miller was also arrested on a warrant for failure to appear for possession of methamphetamine.  Bond on the warrant is set at $7,500.
