PLAINFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

A man wanted for failing to appear in court tried to escape police by hiding in a pile of laundry.

Police in Plainfield said they arrested 41-year-old Brent Ramos of Central Village on five separate arrest warrants Thursday.

The warrants charged him with second-degree failure to appear.

Officers said they arrived at Ramos' Putnam Road apartment just before 8:30 p.m. to serve the warrants when they realized he fled on foot to a vacant upstairs apartment.

He was found in a crawl space under a laundry pile, police said.

He was arrested and held on a $50,000 bond.

Ramos was given a court date of Monday in Danielson.
