SWAT Team Called Into Action For Pulaski County Arrest

A Pulaski County man was arrested Sunday after being sought on charges in an arrest warrant.

An anonymous tip was called into the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department that Joshua Thomas Wolfe, 27, was at a residence in Ripley. Tips had also been called into the Sheriff’s Department reporting Wolfe was armed with a pistol.

Four members of the sheriff’s SWAT team surrounded the house and, after numerous attempts to get Wolfe out of the home by using the public address system, the officers began to move toward the home with the intent to enter and take Wolfe into custody. Wolfe then exited the home and surrendered without incident.

Wolfe was being sought on charges of Revocation of Probation for Sexual Misconduct with a Minor, Dealing in Methamphetamine and other charges in surrounding counties. He remains in the Pulaski County Jail.
