Man behind bars after standoff with Jacksonville police

Man behind bars after standoff with Jacksonville police

(TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - A Jacksonville man is back behind bars after being arrested on a parole violation.

Police were tipped off that 22 year old Andres Saucedo was hiding at the Jacksonville home of his girlfriend. When officers arrived, he refused to come out.

Police had good information that he was in the house. But he refused to come to the door and police also could not get him one the phone.

They were not sure if he had weapons or if anyone else was in the home with him.

Police were ready for a stand-off or to make a forcible entry. They had even called the SWAT team to the scene. But this ultimately ended peacefully.

A short time later, Saucedo did come out of the house on his own. He was immediately taken into custody and is now being held in the Cherokee County Jail.
