JPD's SWAT Team Called on For Stand-Off with Robbery Suspects

JONESBORO, AR - Three armed robbery suspects are now in police custody after the JPD's SWAT team was called on earlier this afternoon in mid-town Jonesboro.

Police sources at the scene say one of the suspects had apparently barricaded himself inside a house at the corner of Flint and Thomas streets around noon.  Just minutes ago, that third and final suspect was captured by police, who are now doing a perimeter search of the area, which was closed to traffic.

K8 News has a crew at the scene, and will have more information as it becomes available.
