A Monroe man was arrested after barricading himself inside a home in Newton on Sunday afternoon. Just before one o’clock, police received information a wanted man was outside a home on North Second Avenue.
The man was wanted on a charge of failure to renew rental permits. When police arrived, the man ran inside the home, which was deemed unfit to live in by the fire department. Negotiations failed, so police got a search warrant and entered the home and arrested 41-year-old Jeffery Charles on the rental permit charge and for interference with official acts.
