JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – The City of Jamestown Police Department has been busy over the past 24-hours arresting several wanted suspects roaming the streets.

Four people were arrested in three separate reported incidents, with the first taking place Tuesday morning where Michael Connolly was arrested following a brief foot pursuit.

Police say Connolly, who was known to have outstanding warrants, was spotted walking in the area of 556 East Second Street. When officers approached, the 20-year-old fled. Following the brief chase, he was arrested and taken to city jail.

Later in the day, officers were performing a well being check at a westside address where they made contact with William Groom, who also had a valid arrest warrant.

As they attempted to take Groom into custody, he allegedly became combative. Following a brief struggle, he was taken into custody and now faces a slew of additional charges, including resisting arrest.

Finally, around 1 a.m. Wednesday 58-year-old Kevin McCool and 39-year-old Amanda McClellan were taken into custody during a traffic stop at the intersection of East 5th Street and Factory Alley.

McCool, the vehicle’s driver, had an arrest warrant from Jamestown City Court for failing to appear, while McClellan, the car’s passenger, was wanted for a parole violation in Pennsylvania.
