LEMMON VALLEY, Nev. (KOLO) -A Lemmon Valley neighborhood was evacuated for hours Friday as the search for a suspect in a sparks homicide continues.

The Washoe County Sheriff’s swat team served a search warrant for Sparks Police on the home of 53-year-old Ramon Michael “Mike” Clare.

As expected he was not at home, but nevertheless, officers took all precautions, evacuating other homes on Redpine Road, surrounding the residence, even using a robot and ‘flash bang’ explosive prior to entering the home. Investigators hoped to find evidence inside.

Sparks police have been looking for Clare since shortly after the body of 41-year-old Isaac Reshatoff was found in a vehicle at the corner of Prater Way and Mccarran Boulevard shortly before midnight Nov.10.

Clare was initially described as a ‘person of interest, earlier this week a warrant was issued for his arrest. Authorities have apparently located three of his vehicles, but there’s been no sign of Clare or a motorcycle he owns.

He is known to ride in the hills surrounding the Reno-Sparks area. A Sparks police spokesman said anyone who sees Clare should not approach him but should notify Sparks police immediately.

Secret Witness has posted a $2,500 reward for information leading to arrest and prosecution in the case. Their number is 775-322-4900.
