At approximately 8:15 am, members of the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office attempted to serve an arrest warrant for Gregory Gerrets, W/M, 29, in the 4200 block of Center St. in Metairie. When they contacted Gerrets, he was found to be in close proximity to a firearm. When informed of the warrant and asked to exit the residence, he closed the door and refused to exit the location.
Our SWAT team was then activated and efforts to negotiate his surrender began. At approximately 10:05 am, Gerrets surrendered peacefully.
Gerrets will be booked on the outstanding warrant for LRS 14:95.1 Felon in possession of a firearm and several unrelated attachments.
