Huntington Police arrested a man after a short standoff on Adams Avenue Wednesday morning.
Randy Lee Saunders Jr., 31, of Huntington was arrested by Huntington police.
Police say they saw a Saunders carrying a stolen television out of an apartment complex shortly after 11 a.m. When police tried to stop him, he dropped the television and ran inside a home in the 2300 block of Adams Avenue.
After a brief standoff, Saunders left the house and was arrested by police. We spoke with neighbor Cricket Hudson who said the situation was especially scary because there was a baby inside the residence.
Saunders is charged with burglary, fleeing, and petit larceny and is being held at the Western Regional Jail on a $30,000 dollar bond.
