At approximately 7 p.m. the same day, police received another report of a stolen vehicle and upon arrival on scene, officers located the original vehicle, which had been switched for the second stolen vehicle.
Further, at approximately 11:15 p.m., police received a report of an unknown individual who had entered a residence in the area of Government Road. The suspect left the residence when confronted by the homeowner and was determined to be barricaded inside a structure on the property.
