Suspect Nabbed After Causing Problems At A High-Desert Grocery Store

Deputies in Yucca Valley called in the SWAT Team to grab a suspect and end a stand-off that lasted 4 hours Thursday morning June 27th 2024.

It started at 8 in the morning when a man broke through the glass door at Stater Brothers grocery store on Highway 62 and started lighting things on fire.

Then the suspect dashed out of the store, jumped into a car, and sat there unwilling to come out of the car, despite the triple digit heat.

Officers were able to end the incident peacefully around noon Thursday, arresting the suspect.
