CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - A man is in custody after a standoff Monday morning in Cape Girardeau.

According to Cape Girardeau police, Germond M. Cobb, 35, of Cape Girardeau, Missouri was wanted on a felony warrant for obstructing a court order. Child endangerment charges are pending, according to police.

According to Chief Wes Blair, officers went to a home on the 3100 block of Mimosa Street to serve a felony warrant where the man was holed up.

A woman answered the door and confirmed the man they were looking for was inside. She told the officers that the man had guns and slammed the door closed, according to Chief Blair.

Investigators negotiated with the man for a couple of hours before he finally came out peacefully.

It happened near the intersection with Woodbine. Police had set up a staging area at a laundry business near there.

Cobb was taken into custody at 10:15 a.m.

Sergeant Rick Schmidt with the Cape Girardeau Police Department said two children were also in the home when the man was taken into custody.

Cobb was being held on $40,000 cash only bond plus special conditions.
