The Jamestown Police Department arrested a man sought on an active arrest warrant Monday after a citizen's tip.
The department said Stutsman County Communications Center received information shortly after 11 a.m. from an anonymous concerned citizen reporting a male with an active arrest warrant was at 122 Sunnyside Trailer Court. The caller said the suspect drove a vehicle to the trailer house, and the vehicle was parked outside.
Jamestown police officers responded to the address, and the first officer to arrive observed a male walking into the residence. The officer attempted to make contact at the residence and a female answered the door. She notified officers of the male’s identity in the back bedroom. Officers attempted to make contact, but the male suspect fled out of a window and ran through the trailer park. Officers saw the suspect flee into 128 Sunnyside Trailer Court. Multiple officers set up a perimeter around the residence and attempted to convince the suspect to come out and give himself up. The male refused to acknowledge the officers commands and a search warrant was obtained for the residence, police said. Officers carried out the search warrant.
During the search, officers located Gary Zinck Jr., a 43-year-old Jamestown resident, inside the entryway of the trailer house. Zinck Jr. was arrested on the parole violations warrant. He was taken into custody without incident and transported to Stutsman County Corrections to await further legal proceedings. The Jamestown Police Department was assisted by the Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office and North Dakota Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. The incident remains under investigation.
