Perez Taken Into Custody

A Jamestown man was arrested in the city Wednesday for being a fugitive from justice – the latest in a string of crimes he has been accused of in the past few years.

Tyler A. Perez, 30, was located and taken into custody at his father’s residence at 739 E. Second St., Apt. 5, at approximately 10:15 a.m. on a felony warrant that said he failed to appear for a possession of a firearm charge from an incident last April.

The incident reportedly involved Perez having a loaded firearm in the Pittsburgh area.

Jamestown police received information from the Allegheny County, Pa., Sheriff’s Office that a felony warrant was issued for Perez.

The 30-year-old Jamestown man will be committed to Chautauqua County Jail, where he will face extradition from authorities in Allegheny County, Pa. at a later date.

In November 2010, Perez was charged with second-degree aggravated harassment, second-degree criminal trespass, resisting arrest and two counts of fourth-degree stalking after visiting a woman who had previously filed warrants for his arrest.

While in jail, Perez was found with contraband in his cell and was charged with second-degree promoting prison contraband.

In a separate incident, Perez was charged with second- and first-degree criminal contempt after he violated a valid order of protection and called a female victim at her workplace several times.

In August 2008, Perez was charged with disorderly conduct after assaulting a woman in a vehicle.

In May 2008, he was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property after using a stolen credit card to get a room at the Hampton Inn.
