This morning, 02/14/2018 around 11:45 a.m., Deputies from the JCSO Warrant Division attempted to serve a mental health warrant at a residence in the 1900 block of Edson. The subject, a 31 year old Beaumont man, opened the door but when he saw Deputies, he grabbed a long gun and retreated into a bedroom.
Deputies were able to make voice contact through a window. The subject refused to come out, barricading himself for approximately three hours. Deputies continued to negotiate with him and at 3:00 pm. he was successfully taken into custody with no injuries sustained.
The incident tied up the neighboring streets for three hours. Regina Howell Elementary was temporarily placed on lock-down due to their close proximity to the incident however, they were never in danger.
We appreciate the patience and kindness of neighbors shown to the Sheriff’s Office during this incident. Special thanks to Beaumont PD for their assistance. #OneCountyOneCommunity
