He was booked into the Pierce County jail on his warrants and a new possession of a firearm charge.

Last Wednesday, Rayment escaped a massive manhunt. The U.S. Marshals, WSP, Lacey police and 3 separate K9 units were looking for him in tangle wild until 7pm. After being recognized by a tipster, Lacey officers made contact but Rayment wouldn’t get out of the vehicle. As the Lacey officer waited for backup, he threw a spike strip behind the vehicle. When other officers got there, Rayment took off blowing out the tires. As he was fleeing, Lacey police fired at the truck with pepper balls, breaking out a window. Rayment fled in the vehicle until the tires came off and he was riding on the rims.  Rayment got away but lost control of his vehicle at the corner by Day n Night grocery. He fled on foot and a k9 track was started. The WSP plane was put in the air. While being tracked He burglarized a house and stole clothes changing his appearance, shaved his facial hair off and stole the victims phone. The home owner came home (interrupted burg) and he was off running again. Police ultimately believe he called someone to pick him up.​
