5 arrested in West End standoff

WEST END, OH (FOX19) - Five people are behind bars after a late night SWAT standoff in the West End.

It started around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 1500 block of Jones Street and ended peacefully just after 4 a.m.

Police say they arrived at the apartment to arrest Jermaine Thomas, 29, for numerous outstanding charges. However, when officers arrived, the occupants would not open the door.

Police obtained a written consent to search the apartment from the owner/lessee, and SWAT assisted with gaining entry.

Four other men, Antonio Harman, 26, Albert Jones, 28, Fred Langford, 28, and Artez Thomas, 18, are charged with obstruction of justice for refusing to open the door.
