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 Sept. 5, Sheriff’s Officers arrived at Terrell’s Anna Street residence in Elizabeth. One officer was speaking with a resident of the house at the front door when another officer noticed a man fitting the description of the suspect allegedly 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 search of the residence began. In the attic, an unregistered shot gun was recovered. A short time later, Terrell was found in a downstairs closet full of clothes.

He was taken into custody without further incident and transported to the Union County Jail.
