A 27-year-old man identified as Logan R. Tipton is in custody after a standoff Thursday morning.
According to Capt. Jeff Wilson with the St. Joseph Police Department, a call came in at 6:45 a.m., reporting a burglary at a house in the 2800 block of Angelique Street.
Officers arrived on scene and the suspect barricaded himself in the attic.
Based on previous information, officers believed the suspect may have been armed and SRT and the fire department were called in to assist.
Wilson said less-lethal munitions, or tear gas, were used and Tipton eventually was taken into custody around 11 a.m.
He is being held without bond and charged with burglary, according to Wilson.
