The barricade started shortly after 5 p.m. when deputies patrolling the area spotted a vehicle parked outside a home in the 5900 block of W. Bowles Ave. that had been reported stolen. Several people left the home, but two men refused to come outside.

The sheriff’s office issued a CodeRed Alert to residents within quarter mile of the scene, asking them to shelter in place. The SWAT Team was called in to negotiate with the men, who were taken into custody without incident.
