On Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 8, 2022, Antioch Police officers were patrolling the Sycamore Square shopping center when a 30-year-old male was contacted. As officers continued their investigation, it was discovered that the male was armed, and a brief struggle ensued during which time the loaded firearm was found concealed on his person.

During this tense and chaotic incident, a second male subject attempted to interfere in the arrest and also found himself in police custody. The firearm depicted in the photograph was discovered to be previously reported as stolen to Antioch PD as well from a separate incident.

We are happy to report no one was hurt during this scary encounter, and the male arrested will be spending some time in the county jail. Harrison was arrested for burglary and grand theft.
