GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- A short standoff leads to the arrest of a wanted man in Mesa County.

On Saturday at 8 p.m., Grand Junction Police officers attempted to contact 29-year-old Jason Garringer for a no-bond arrest warrant. He was wanted for stalking, felony menacing and violation of a protection order in a Mar. 29 domestic violence incident.

When officers met with Garringer at 635 Bluegill Drive, he refused to leave the house.

Police say they had reports that Garringer was armed with a handgun and knives, so SWAT was called out to helped.

After what police call a “brief standoff,” Garringer was arrested without incident.

His list of charges now includes failing to leave a residence when ordered by police, possession of a schedule II controlled substance and introduction of a controlled substance into a correctional facility.
