Cook County sheriff's police arrested a man in Calumet City last week who was wanted on a number of warrants including attempted murder in Elkhart County, Ind., officials said.

Jimmy Harmon, aka Christopher Bolden, is being held without bond at the Cook County Jail, according to a news release issued Wednesday by the Cook County Sheriff's Department.

Harmon, 31, was wanted on warrants for criminal damage to vehicle from the Harvey Police Department; one count each of attempted murder, aggravated battery and battery resulting in serious bodily injury from Elkhart County; and one count each of operating vehicle causing serious bodily injury and serious bodily injury with alcohol from Elkhart County.

The Cook County Sheriff's Central Warrant Unit arrested Harmon after receiving information he had an active order of protection filed Nov. 8, the release states. Attached to the order was an active warrant for criminal damage to a vehicle in Harvey and three out-of-state warrants. Further investigation revealed Harmon had been eluding arrest for nearly three years on the warrants from Elkhart County, the release states.

Through numerous interviews, Harmon's location was narrowed down to the south suburbs of Cook County. On Friday, Harmon was confirmed to be at an apartment complex located on the 500 block of Jeffery Avenue in Calumet City. Sheriff's officers saw Harmon through a front window of the building, and a relative allowed them to enter the building through the front door, the release states.

After a search, officers found Harmon hiding in a hallway closet behind some clothing items and arrested him, the release states.
