SALEM, Mo.(AP)-- A man who was holed up in a home north of Salem was arrested without incident Saturday afternoon by officers who entered the house nearly 48 hours after a standoff began.
The suspect offered no resistance when about 20 federal agents entered his home, said Mark James, special agent in charge of the Kansas City office of the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

Authorities would not say who lived in the home, but relatives and neighbors identified the resident as 43-year-old James "Jamie" Schwartz.

The standoff began Thursday afternoon at the home about eight miles north of Salem on Missouri 68 when agents tried to serve a federal search warrant and an occupant refused to come out.

A woman left the home Thursday shortly after officers arrived. James would not say where she was or if she had been arrested. No children were in the home when officers arrived.

James said he could not discuss what prompted the search warrant because it had been sealed by a judge. He would say only that agents "found what we were looking for."

Denton County Sheriff Bob Wofford said his department had previous contact with the suspect but he declined to elaborate.

"We knew there was activity here," Wofford said.

The suspect is expected to be arraigned before a federal magistrate in St. Louis, possibly as early as Monday, James said.

A team of 12 negotiators had been unsuccessful in contacting the man throughout the siege, despite using bullhorns, a telephone and robots equipped with audio and visual capabilities.

James said officers decided to enter the home in part because they were concerned about the man's condition.

"The individual would not answer us or respond to us," James said.

About 100 officers, including some from U.S. Customs, surrounded the home throughout the standoff.

Portions of Missouri 68 were closed and two homes located nearby were evacuated. James said the inconvenience caused by the standoff also was a factor in deciding to enter the home.

Mike and Mary Mrozowicz, who live in a nearby home that was not evacuated, said the ranch-style house also has a mobile home on the property.

The Mrozowiczes said they've seen men wearing camouflage clothing and helmets hiding in the nearby woods with guns.

They said they've seen agents coming and going over the last couple of days, but the agents weren't giving area residents any clues what they were doing there.

The warrant was ordered out of the eastern district of Missouri. Jan Diltz, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in St. Louis, said she could not discuss the warrant.

WELL at least, they brought a lot of revenue into the county,they didn,t tear up the roads ,, they had to buy gas , eat & had to meet somewhere & sleep somewhere. Lots of county officials were involved. BROUGHT media attention,(now the guy is acting like nothing happened) cost the county A LOT OF MONEY..... wonder what all this compares to.

How long does a person have to pay ? He did his time.
If you have a problem with someone that was done in private, you handle it in private. If the problem was done in public then you can take it public.

Some people are known for different things,, They make thier choice for what that is,,,,,,,, Jamie made his choice. You can make your choice , you just can't choose the consequense. " WE" have the same right ,on how to deal with that person. By selling drugs , he harmed a lot of people. So I'd be safe in saying , some people will never forget all the damage he done.

YOU ARE ALL GUINEA PIGS!!!
Jamie Schwartz, and his dad, have no clue on what they are doing. They really on internet info. websites such as identifix, and all data, and shopkey - which anyone can pay a hundred and fifty dollars a month to have online auto repair support info. What makes you all GUINEA PIGS is Jamie and his Dad, and his technician JOHN all learn as they go.
HALF OF JAMIE SCHWARTZ'S SHOP SUPPLIES/TOOLS are stolen from RANDY ELLSWORTH, and the other half he stole shane's tools & his own sons Mathew Schwartz tools.
The prices are not close being cheap. Comparing his charges to what big city shops charge, it's cheaper at a big shop in the city than it is at the auto connection.
JAMIE CHARGES TO CHECK YOUR CAR OUT - when in surrounding cities they do it free, and tow your vehicle free with repair, and no added charges.
Who in their right mind, would want to take their nice car to a PILL POPPING THREE TIME CONVICTED FELON ON FEDERAL PAROLE? That has stolen more things than anyone could ever imagine?
His pill popping sister Cora Lea fixes and covers all of Jamie's problems and mess ups so it didn't look like he did anything.
When Jamie does misdiagnose your vehicular problems, he still overcharges and then charges you again when they accidentally find the real problem.
Check the Yahoo Personals where Jamie Schwartz's bio is listed as a prospect for dates. Every date he had from July of '08 to June of '09 he would be super excited about, then as it got closer to the time he'd clue his person of interest in on his little criminal secret, then all of a sudden BOOM no date! They'd cancel and he'd sit around at his shop bummed all day Saturday and Sunday, even though there are no customers.

My Physician looks things up too when he isn't sure of something. I would rather someone be sure of a fix then to guess and have to come back later.

As far as his dates or lack there of goes,cluing in his person of interest about his past when he doesn't have to, shows some sort of character.
Will any of this really matter 5 years from now?

I don't know of any shop that does't use the internet service for help.
I took my car to Rolla to Denny's and they charge me to check out my car. So did Knight's in Salem.

You sound like a little kid that got caught and now you're yelling from across the road. Grow up.

I agree, how many posts are they going to start about this? At least this one didn't show the ugly pictures like some of the others did!!! Get over it and get a life, because we just don't care.

word on the street is they don't do motors or transmissions anymore, or are too expensive to deal with, with all the high tech diagnostics and all. NO ONE SHOULD EVER CHARGE TO to tell you what's wrong with your car, either they know or they don't. Why would an experienced mechanic take that much time just to diagnose your car when "time is money"? Busy, big city mechanics don't have hours to diagnose your car, there is too much business rolling in and out. However if you live in a small rural town, they have the time to sit around and read this local news and freak out over it like Jamie is doing right now.

I really liked the ad in the paper before the election from auto connection telling us who he thinks we should vote for. What an arrogant S.O.B.!!! A convicted felon putting in the paper who he thinks we should vote for!!!!!! I see he inherited the crazy gene from that old coot that is is father. As far as Auto Connection, I went in there once for a repair and Jamie acked like he didnt care if he worked on my car or not.
