February 9, 2021 (Alpine) -- A man is under arrest following a three-hour SWAT standoff in Alpine this morning.
Around 7:30 a.m., deputies from the Sheriff's Special Enforcement Detail (SED)/SWAT tried to serve a search warrant at a home in the 4600 block of Park Lane. The warrant was issued after deputies received reports of a man firing a gun at that address on January 25.
The Alpine Sheriff's Station's Crime Suppression Team investigated and learned Joshua Havins, 30, lived at that location. He is a felon currently on probation and is prohibited from owning or possessing firearms under California law, according to the Sheriff’s department.
