GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — A SWAT standoff with a shelter-in-place ended with a man in jail this weekend.
Grand Junction Police Officers attempted to contact a man with several warrants on Sunday in the 1800 block of North 23rd Street. 32-year-old Marco Macias reportedly refused to cooperate with officers and barricaded himself.
SWAT operators with the GJPD and Mesa County Sheriff’s Office eventually managed to arrest Macias after a standoff that lasted over three hours.
Authorities issued a shelter-in-place for the surrounding area during the altercation that has since been lifted. The GJPD believes this to be an isolated incident with no further threat to the community. No further information is available at this time.
