Man Wanted on Felony Charge Arrested After Standoff
A Clifton man wanted on a Felony charge decided to make it as difficult as possible for police to arrest him.
The Mesa County Sheriff’s Office says it took two hours, the assistance of the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team, and the Grand Junction Police Department SWAT Team to end the standoff with 24-year-old Brandon Pecha.
Officers were in the process of attempting to contact and arrest Pecha for a no bond Felony Menacing warrant and Misdemeanor warrants when the standoff began.
In addition to the outstanding warrants, Pecha is now facing charges of Second Degree Assault and Domestic Violence. He is currently being held at the Mesa County Jail.
