On November 15, 2022, members of the Klamath Falls Police Department (KFPD) and their Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team served a search warrant at 336 Lewis Street in Klamath Falls. Alvin Ayers Jr. (40 years old) was arrested after a short standoff without further incident. His warrants are for two (2) felony counts for violation of release agreement, three (3) felony counts for failure to appear (FTA), three (3) misdemeanor counts for violation of release agreement, four (4) misdemeanor counts for FTA, one (1) misdemeanor charge for Assault in the 4th degree / Domestic Abuse, and one (1) misdemeanor charge for Harassment. Mr. Ayers was lodged in the Klamath County Jail and was held on all fourteen (14) charges.
Mr. Ayers has been avoiding police contact for more than a month. Mr. Ayers runs inside his residence to avoid capture, and he has been an ongoing public safety concern for his neighbors due to his reported erratic and violent behavior toward them. The Klamath Falls Police Department would like to thank these community members for their patience and cooperation, so we were able to provide a peaceful resolution to a potentially violent situation.
Klamath Falls SWAT includes members of KFPD and Klamath County Fire District (KCFD) #1, and members of the Basin Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team (BINET) and KFPD Patrol Division assisted in the search warrant execution.
Anyone with additional information regarding Mr. Ayers is encouraged to call the Klamath Falls Police Department at 541-883-5336 or our anonymous Tip Line at (541) 883-5334.
