Wanted City Man Jailed After Pursuit

Brandon Murphy

A Jamestown man was turned over to the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office following a foot chase earlier this week.

Officers on Monday observed 22-year-old Brandon L. Murphy in the area of Lakeview Avenue and Price Street around 1 p.m. Police were aware Murphy was wanted on an arrest warrant and ordered him to stop.

Murphy reportedly fled the area, leading police on a foot chase for a few blocks, the Jamestown Police Department reported Friday. The city man reportedly ran into the hallway of an apartment complex before he was taken into custody by Jamestown police.

Murphy was charged with resisting arrest and arraigned in Jamestown City Court. He was turned over to sheriff’s deputies on the active arrest warrants.
