POCATELLO (KPVI) — The Pocatello Police Department arrested a man after a stand-off on Wednesday night, reports KPVI.

The police have not yet released the man’s name or the crimes he allegedly committed. They also have not released if he was armed during the incident.

KPVI reported the incident began around 6:30 p.m. after a police officer observed the suspect, a 45-year-old man, who they knew to have active warrants.
