Colorado Springs po­lice say they don’t be­lieve there was foul play in­volved in the death of a man whose body was found in a home this week by of­fi­cers search­ing for a car-theft sus­pect.

It’s un­clear how long the dead man had been there, po­lice spokesman Lt. Howard Black said.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors say a citizen called au­thor­i­ties to re­port that a stolen ve­hi­cle and a sus­pect in the theft had been found in front of a house in the 200 block of Longfel­low Drive in the south­east part of the city. The per­son said the sus­pect had gone into the home.

While search­ing the house Mon­day af­ter­noon, of­fi­cers found the dead man and lo­cated the theft sus­pect, who had bar­ri­caded him­self in a down­stairs room.

Colorado Springs po­lice say a tac­ti­cal unit was called in to help ar­rest him.

Po­lice say sev­eral peo­ple were ar­rested but haven’t re­leased their iden­ti­ties.
