Man Wanted for N.J. Slaying Nabbed in Raleigh

Posted July 11, 2007

— U.S. marshals on Wednesday arrested a man wanted in connection with a slaying in New Jersey last summer, authorities said.

Jamar Ments, 21, of 172 William St. in East Orange, N.J., is charged with homicide and weapons offenses in connection with a homicide that occurred in East Orange on Aug. 11, 2006, authorities said. He is being held in the Wake County Jail pending extradition to New Jersey.

Marshals in New Jersey learned two weeks ago that Ments might be in the Raleigh area. Local marshals determined he was staying in an apartment in the area of Sunnybrook Drive, and they arrested him Wednesday morning at 1611 Thoroughbred Lane.

    It doesn't matter where you're from or where you're hiding folks. There is trash in every state. I'm just glad they got his sorry butt off the streets. He's going down.

    Another great day for law enforcement! Keep up the good work. Get these people off our streets and into our jails.

    --why do all the criminals up north come down south to hide?--

    The same reason criminals from the south go north to hide.
