ADA COUNTY -- A man is behind bars following a standoff at an Ada County home Friday evening.

Police say they were attempting to serve an arrest warrant on 38-year-old Mario Garcia-Rojas when he barricaded himself inside the home on State Street near Horseshoe Bend Road.

SWAT team officers eventually used tear gas and a robot to coax the man into surrendering just after 8 p.m.

Garcia-Rojas was wanted on a felony warrant for grand theft out of Twin Falls, police said.
