BIGBEE, Miss. (WTVA) -- Monroe County authorities say they have arrested a man following a standoff Wednesday afternoon.

Sheriff Cecil Cantrell says Steven Alton Brantley, 53, and David Little, 35, were taken into custody around 5:45 p.m.

A section of Highway 6 in Monroe County was closed for several hours during the standoff.

Cantrell says the incident began when agents made a drug purchase as part of an investigation into the sale of "ice".

He says deputies followed the woman and got a warrant to search a home on Highway 6 at New Road.

The MHP SWAT team was called in to assist with the standoff and arrests.

WTVA News has a crew at the scene and will have more details as they become available.
