(KRON) — A man was arrested on Tuesday after he barricaded himself in a vehicle, according to a press release from the Novato Police Department. The suspect was identified as 35-year-old Jaris Wilcox, and he was arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle and resisting arrest.

At about 2:00 p.m., NPD officers were dispatched to the Vintage Oaks Shopping Center, located at 208 Vintage Way. The call was for a stolen vehicle, and officers initiated a “high-risk” traffic stop.

“’High-risk’ traffic stops are typically initiated when a vehicle is reported as stolen or when the stop may pose a significant risk to the officers or community when dealing with the occupants of a vehicle,” NPD said.

Wilcox did not stop when asked, and “proceeded to drive around traffic in an unsafe manner,” police said. He finally stopped but barricaded himself into a vehicle.

The Novato/San Rafael regional Crisis Negotiation Team was deployed with an armored response vehicle. Authorities did not know if Wilcox was armed. After several hours of negotiations, Wilcox got out of the car and was arrested.
