NEW CASTLE — New Castle police chased a man through the South Side Thursday afternoon.

Chief Robert Salem said an officer had seen James Jones Jr. of New Castle.

“The officer knew he was wanted on multiple warrants by multiple police departments so we chased him and he fled.”

Salem said officers pursued Jones on foot through the neighborhood and he eventually took refuge in a Reynolds Street residence.

Police found him hidden in the basement, Salem said.
