Sheriff’s Officers Arrest Man Wanted on Two Outstanding Warrants
With the assistance of a K-9 team, Union County Sheriff’s Officers apprehended an Elizabeth man last week on two outstanding warrants.
Jumani Terrell, 20, was wanted for failure to appear for sentencing on manufacturing and distribution of heroin and cocaine charges. He also had a warrant for contempt of court.
On the morning of September 5, Sheriff’s Officers arrived at Terrell’s Anna Street residence in Elizabeth. One officer was speaking with a resident of the house at front door when another officer noticed a man fitting the description of the suspect attempting to exit a second floor rear window. Seeing the officer, he ducked back inside.
After more backup arrived, including a K-9 unit, a searched of the residence began. In the attic, an unregistered shot gun was recovered. A short time later, Terrell was found in a down stairs closet full of clothes.
He was taken into custody without further incident and transported to the Union County Jail.
