A man arrested earlier this week following a brief standoff with Pike County Sheriff’s Deputies.
Sheriff James E. Nelson reports the Pike County Sheriff’s Office received a call for service on Tuesday, March 24th just before 1:00 p.m. from the area of Smith Road in reference to a male subject entering a residence occupied by an adult female and her children and locking them in the residence.
Upon arrival of Deputies it was found the male subject had left the residence and was driven to an area of Darst Road. The suspect, identified as Kevin Jenkins, was then located in a small camper on Darst Road where a short standoff with Deputies ensured.
Jenkins was soon taken into custody and charged with felony burglary and unlawful restraint. He is currently being held in the Butler County Jail on a $41,250 bond.
