On October 15, 2014 detectives from the Reno and Sparks police departments conducted a joint operation to attempt to capture a wanted person.
That wanted person is Kenny Bremer, who had been a suspect in a number of crimes in Reno including fraud and felony eluding over the past few weeks.
The operation concluded with a planned arrest at the Pony Express Motor Lodge. Bremer arrived there at about 7 p.m.. as a passenger in a vehicle. Detectives executed a vehicle block, which is a technique designed to prevent a suspect from leaving a scene and potentially leading officers on a vehicle pursuit. As detectives executed the vehicle block, the driver of the vehicle complied with officers instructions to exit the vehicle. The driver was not charged in the incident.
Bremer, 27, quickly moved from the passenger seat to the driver's seat and put the suspect vehicle into gear. He then accelerated the vehicle into a detective's vehicle, causing moderate damage. Bremer was forcibly removed from the vehicle and taken into custody. He was charged with assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer and possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine). His bail for that incident is $25,000.
Bremer did receive minor injuries and received treatment from REMAX at the scene. The officer was not injured. Reno Police will be adding charges from their previous cases. The exact charges and bail amount for those cases is not known.
