While patrols were attempting to locate the suspect from the vehicle theft, patrols received a report of an incident where a suspect matching the description of the vehicle theft forcibly entered a residence on Shannon St. and would not allow the residents to leave. The suspect was armed with two rifles, later determined to be the rifles stolen from the pickup earlier that evening.
