MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - A standoff in the Crichton community lasted for about two hours Sunday as Police cars swarmed Durant Street off Springhill Avenue.
Police said Jose Scruggs barricaded himself inside a house in the 200 block around 1:30 p.m. Officers said the suspect entered the home, and the tactical unit was notified and responded.
After negotiations, MPD said, Scruggs was detained without incident; he was arrested on active felony warrants. More than two dozen patrol cars, a SWAT unit, and Mobile Fire-Rescue were all on the scene.
Pat Judge, who lives across the street said, "I came outside to pick up my paper, and it was like Oh God what's going on."
Police blocked off the Durant, and told Judge to move back to his home, but he still had a pretty good view of what happened, he said.
"They got one guy out. I saw them bring him down here on the front yard," Judge said.
Judge said the man police took into custody lives in the house.
"I have no clue as to whether he was involved. I got the impression from talking to the officer, he asked me to come back inside, that this guy was holed up in there."
There was more than enough manpower to get the suspect out.
"It was a very efficient operation. They brought the armored vehicle in. Then they brought the dogs, the SWAT team when in and it was just a matter of a few minutes," Judge said.
Another man said his mother also lives on Durant.
"My mom lives down at the end of the street, and it's just been bunch of drama," the man said.
