A burglary arrest turned into a standoff early Saturday morning on the city's west side.

Police say officers were called to Wright Street just after 3 a.m. When officers arrived, they found a house had been burglarized and the suspect had ran into a nearby house.

Officers say they "contained" the suspect in the house and he was taken into custody later Saturday morning. Officials say the investigation is still ongoing and more information will be released when it's available.
