Auto Theft Task Force Takes Over Investigation

The investigation into a three and a half hour standoff is now in the hands of the South Plains Auto Theft Task Force.

The standoff started around 5:30pm Thursday when authorities tried to serve a search warrant at 3817 32nd Street. The warrant was issued after an officer suspected stolen property was at the home. After the primary suspect refused to come out, the officer called for back up and that's when the SWAT team surrounded the neighborhood.

"We brought the personnel and the equipment out based on the threat that was perceived at the time, based on the information we had at the time," said Lubbock Police Department Public Information Officer Roy Bassett. 

Just before 9pm, all four people inside the home surrendered. Only one man remains in custody, but an investigation is ongoing.
