Arrested 10 times in last 12 months, Anderson felon arrested again

LAKEHEAD, Calif. — Authorities attempting to serve a civil warrant at a Lakehead residence Thursday morning, Feb. 18, instead were able to once again arrest Camren James Taylor, an oft-arrested felony probationer who was wanted on eight outstanding felony charges and considered armed and dangerous. A woman who provided a false name and was later found to have multiple outstanding warrants for her arrest was also apprehended. 

The wanted Anderson felon deputies were trying to serve the civil order on, Lucas David Childs, 37, fled the scene moments before deputies arrived at the residence. The parolee was not located at the time and is currently wanted for felony warrants on weapons-related charges, according to officials; who said he is considered armed and dangerous.

Shasta County sheriff’s deputies went to the Lakehead property around 8:50 a.m. to serve the civil order at an RV trailer on Big Oak Lane where Childs was known to reside, Shasta County Sheriff’s Sergeant Garet Baldwin later said of the incident and arrests.

In addition to intending to serve Childs with the civil order, deputies had received a tip that another armed and dangerous wanted felon, Camren James Taylor, 25, of Anderson, was also possibly at the location or in the area.

“As deputies were approaching the trailer, Taylor was contacted and began to run, but quickly stopped when Sheriff’s Office K-9 ‘Fritz’ began to bark, and orders were given by deputies to stop,” Burke described; adding that Taylor was taken into custody without further incident.

“Our records indicate Taylor has been arrested ten times in Shasta County over the last twelve months,” Burke later told SCNS.

While conducting a parole search inside Child’s RV trailer, deputies located a firearm, according to Burke, who explained, “Childs is a convicted felon which prohibits him from possessing any firearms.”

A woman, later identified as Lisa Marie Deaton, 28, of Anderson, was also contacted near the trailer and provided a false name to deputies in an attempt to avoid arrest, according to Burke.

“Once her identity was confirmed, Deaton was arrested on her warrants,” the Sergeant said.

Taylor was later booked into Shasta County Jail in Redding for his felony warrants and Deaton was also booked on her warrants along with a new charge of providing a false name to a peace officer.

Online jail records indicate both Taylor and Deaton remain in custody, where they are both being held without bail.

“The Sheriff’s Office is actively looking for Childs as he is considered armed and dangerous and
wanted for his outstanding felony warrants,” said Burke; who added that charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm will be filed against Childs with the Shasta County District Attorney’s Office.

Anyone with information regarding Childs’ whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office at (530) 245-6540. Callers can refer to incident file number 21S005630 and can remain anonymous.
