LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --  A standoff is over after a burglary suspect barricaded himself in a home in south Louisville for hours on Thursday. 

LMPD spokesman Officer Lamont Washington said officers tried to serve a warrant at the home on Arling Avenue off Taylor Boulevard about 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, but the man, identified later as Larry Sharpe, refused to come out of the home. 

After several hours, police were able to take Sharpe into custody around 4:30 p.m. 

LMPD said Sharpe is a suspect in a string of burglaries along Dixie Highway. He is charged with six counts of third-degree burglary and tampering with physical evidence.

A second suspect, pictured here, is still at large.
