2 in custody after stolen truck spotted outside Arvada home

A truck stolen in a carjacking in Denver was spotted outside a home on Estes Street in Arvada, a police spokesperson said.

ARVADA, Colo. — Two people are in custody following an hours-long standoff in Arvada Tuesday morning after someone reported a suspicious vehicle outside a home in the 6000 block of Estes Street, a spokesperson for the Arvada Police Department (APD) said.

Police got a call at about 1 a.m. about the Ford pickup truck and learned that it had been reported stolen during an armed carjacking in Denver on Monday,  APD said in a tweet.

Officers responded and found that there were two people inside a home at 6032 Estes St. with felony warrants, APD spokesperson Dave Snelling said. One had a fugitive warrant from the Department of Corrections, the other had a warrant from Denver for drug charges, according to Snelling.

The Jefferson County Regional SWAT Team was called to the scene and around 5 a.m., crews began negotiations with the suspects inside the home, according to Snelling.

Around that same time, a CODERed alert was sent out to neighbors as a precaution, but police said at the time, they did not believe there is a threat to the greater community.

By 9 a.m. both suspects were in custody and no injuries were reported. They were taken to the Jefferson County Jail and now face charges related to the incident overnight in addition to their active warrants for prior charges.
