Members of a U.S. Marshals task force surrounded a Wycliff Road apartment and brought out a man wanted in South Carolina on murder, kidnapping and burglary charges.
The marshals’ Joint Fugitive Task Force surrounded the apartment about 7 a.m. Tuesday, and they and Raleigh police evacuated adjoining units in the building in the Meredith Village Apartments at 2421 Wycliff Road before finding Casey Jones, Sr., 52.
Marshals said Jones was hiding from them after they entered.
Arrest warrants from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division accused Jones of killing a man in Ridgeland, S.C., on June 3 after breaking into a house and holding two youths in a bedroom.
Another arrest warrant from authorities in Beaufort County, S.C., charged Jones earlier in the year with violating his parole on a previous conviction.
A magistrate ordered Jones held without bail because he could face life in prison if convicted of murder in South Carolina.
The marshals service’s joint fugitive task forces combine federal, state, county and local law enforcement officers to find wanted people in each federal court district. Raleigh police officers are part of the Eastern District JFTF.
