NEWBERRY SPRINGS — Authorities arrested a parolee-at-large who allegedly barricaded himself inside a home here Tuesday, officials said.

Tanan Pruett, 28, of Newberry Springs, was arrested after San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department officials responded to a home in the 45000 block of Esperanza Road Tuesday afternoon.

Officials said in a Wednesday statement that Pruett had an active parole violation warrant for his arrest and refused to exit the home when deputies arrived, instead slamming the door shut and moving furniture to attempt to barricade the front door.

Barstow Sheriff’s Station deputies responded to the home at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday after receiving information from another party that Pruett was in the area. Sheriff’s helicopter 40King6 assisted by observing the home until deputies arrived. Pruett, however, proceeded to instead barricade himself inside, officials said.

“Deputies at the location began to make PA announcements to the subject inside the location, attempting to get his voluntary compliance,” officials stated. “Pruett did not respond to the announcements and refused to exit the location.”

Pruett finally exited the home when officials with the Sheriff’s Specialized Enforcement Division arrived to assist deputies on scene. Barstow Sheriff’s Station detectives also obtained a search warrant for the home, but Pruett exited the home before the search and was taken into custody without incident, officials said.

Pruett was booked into the Barstow Jail on an active parole violation. Officials said additional criminal charges are pending.
