Man arrested in Claremont armed standoff remains in jail
Anthony Jarvis, 33, of 10 Provence Ave., continues to be held on a parole detainer in the Sullivan County House of Corrections in Unity. He was charged with felony level possession of marijuana with intent to sell and falsifying physical evidence Tuesday morning, Claremont Police Chief Alexander Scott said in a press release.
Scott also corrected a typographical error in the Friday press release that gave Jarvis' wrong birth year.
At Jarvis' arraignment Friday, he was held on $100,000 cash-only bail and given a March 7 court date in the district court.
Jarvis is the son of Anthony Jarvis Sr., who was fatally shot in a confrontation with police in Charlestown in July of 2008 after a state trooper had been injured in a shooting.
On Friday, police responded to Jarvis' home at 11:59 a.m. to assist the N.H. Department of Corrections Probation and Parole Department with a parole search, Scott said in a press release Friday evening. During the search, Jarvis fled into the home and locked the door behind him.
While inside, he made threatening statements about "doing violence to himself with a firearm," Scott said. "Based on those statements, officers retreated, established a protective perimeter around the house and called for additional officers to respond to the scene."
State police, the Sullivan County Sheriff's Department and additional city police responded to assist. Neighboring homes were evacuated for safety, and a command post was established. The State Police Special Weapons and Tactics Team was placed on standby.
Officers at the scene were able to make cellphone contact with Jarvis through a family member. Around 3 p.m. Jarvis agreed to come out of the house peacefully. He was taken into custody without incident.
According to the N.H. Department of Justice website, the 2008 incident involving Jarvis' father occurred after Jarvis Sr. shot a state trooper in the upper right thigh and again when he was on the floor, hitting the trooper in the finger and right leg. The trooper returned fire, killing Jarvis Sr. The Attorney General's Office ruled that incident a justifiable use of deadly force.
