Assistant Police Chief Laura Koch tells The Elkhart Truth that Tolbert locked himself in the apartment and refused to come out. Tolbert was arrested late Wednesday and no injuries were reported from the standoff.

A judge issued the arrest warrant after a jury convicted him Aug. 27 on felony charges of forgery, resisting arrest and receiving stolen property. He's being held without bond in the Elkhart County Jail.
