JPD Arrests Man Involved in October Stand-Off with Police

DECEMBER 5, 2006 - Posted at 7:41 a.m. CST

 

JONESBORO, AR - The suspect triggering a stand-off with Jonesboro police in October is behind bars this morning.

Joe Palmore has warrants in Poinsett and Craighead counties.  He was arrested Monday morning when JPD officers pulled over a Pontiac Sunfire matching the description of his vehicle. 

On October 17, the JPD Tactical Unit was dispatched to an apartment in north Jonesboro where Palmore was spotted by police officers.  At that time, he was wanted in Poinsett County for allegedly firing a gun at a house in Marked Tree.  When police entered the apartment, they found a weapon, but not Palmore, who had apparently slipped out a rear exit of the building, and managed to avoid authorities until yesterday.
