Joseph Leemhuis, 39, of Idyllwild, arrested in Idyllwild on April 14, 2017, on suspicion of possession for sale of marijuana, was extradited to Ramsey County, Minnesota, on a “no bail” warrant for felony fraud.
According to Darren Meyer, California Highway Patrol public information officer, a tip led to Leemhuis’ arrest in Idyllwild. The tip said Leemhuis was staying at a particular residence.
When Riverside County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the residence, Meyer said Leemhuis fled into the forest. Deputies located him and arrested him on two felony warrants. He was held in Riverside County until his extradition to Minnesota on May 10.
