Standoff leads to Grand Junction SWAT team using tear gas

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Officers with the Grand Junction Police Department arrested a total of six people overnight Tuesday on various charges, stemming from an incident in the 2600 block of Belford Avenue.

Police officers were attempting to arrest 22-year-old Jordan Vigil, a man with several outstanding warrants. The warrants included a no bond warrant for failure to comply on a bevy of charges, such as prohibited use of a firearm, criminal impersonation, and possession of a controlled substance.

Vigil would not come out of an apartment at 2601 Belford Avenue, and eventually the SWAT team had to be called. They had information that a baby was inside the apartment, and eventually 22-year-old Romeo Lujan came out with the baby. Lujan was arrested for an outstanding warrant.

Eventually officers deployed tear gas inside the unit, causing Vigil and 18-year-old Cassidy Seiff to surrender without further incident.

Earlier in the night officers conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle Vigil had previously been seen in. Although Vigil was not in the car 19-year-old Antonio Arredondo and 18-year-old Aide Gutierrez were booked into the Mesa County Jail for various charges, including possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
