Casey Jones Sr., who was wanted in the fatal shooting of a Ridgeland man in June, was charged Tuesday morning after being found hiding in Raleigh, N.C.
According to U.S. Marshal Deputy Bryan Konig, for two hours the marshals’ Joint Fugitive Task Force surrounded a unit at the Meredith Village Apartments on Wycliff Road. Konig said initially nobody would come to the door at the residence. At 7 a.m., the task force and Raleigh police evacuated adjoining units at the apartments and eventually found Jones, of Hampton County, hiding inside a plastic bag underneath clothes in a closet.
