"I'm glad to have West in jail. He has been hiding out for the past few weeks and threatening our officers about not being arrested without a fight. Our SRT did exactly what we want to do in these situations. They went in prepared and the suspects quickly surrendered. This is how we want these conflicts to be resolved. We don't take threats lightly because you just don't know how people are going to act. This was a good outcome", says DeKalb County Sheriff Jimmy Harris.
