Two arrested after police standoff in Homewood

HOMEWOOD, AL (WBRC) – Two men are under arrest after police say they tried to burglarize two homes in Homewood.

The Homewood Police Department said they received a burglary call around 8:53 a.m. Wednesday morning. Upon arriving at the home on Bristol Lane in the Camden Place subdivision, the homeowner told police two men had tried to break into the home but ran away after she pointed her gun at the suspects.

The suspects fled and made an attempt to break into a second house on Heidi Circle. At this point, police spotted the suspects. One suspect immediately surrendered to police, but the other ran into the house and began a standoff against police inside the home.

The standoff lasted for more than two hours until police were able to get inside. They found the suspect hiding under a couch.

No one was hurt.

Both men are now facing burglary charges.
