A man arrested Tuesday by the U.S. Marshals made a court appearance Friday on a warrant issued in a burglary and domestic assault case.

Daniel Lee Ramirez, 37, appeared in Yellowstone County District Court on a $30,000 warrant a case filed last year.

In that case, Ramirez faces felony counts of burglary, partner or family member assault and drug possession, along with a misdemeanor charge of tampering with or destroying a communication device.

Ramirez also made an initial court appearance Wednesday in a case filed this week. The charges allege that while officers were executing a search warrant on Dec. 20, 2012, at a residence in the 200 block of Fourth Street West, they found that Ramirez had prescription pills and a syringe used to ingest drugs.

Ramirez has $40,000 bond between the two cases. He is scheduled to enter pleas in the latest case on May 27. He missed his scheduled trial date in the burglary case, and a new trial date hasn’t yet been set.

Two other Ramirez brothers have had recent run-ins with the law.

In April, Billings Police Officer Grant Morrison shot and killed Ramirez’s brother, Richard Ramirez, during a traffic stop. Richard Ramirez was a suspect in an earlier robbery.

A third Ramirez brother, Jason, has twice been arrested by the U.S. Marshals task force since his brother’s death on warrants out of Yellowstone and Gallatin counties.

He remains in custody at the county jail on a total bond of $520,000, with multiple felony charges pending.
