Hot Springs Police Special Investigations Detective Threadgill reports that the HSPD SID, HSPD SWAT and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency executed a high risk search warrant at 316 Hermlee Street on November 19, 2020 around 4:49PM.

The officers blocked access to the target house and rolled the armored SWAT vehicle right up to the front door.  Parolee Lloyd Jenson, Jr., of 316 Hermlee in Hot Springs, was ordered (over the loudspeaker) to exit the house with his hands up or force would be used against him.

Parolee Lloyd Jenson, Jr., of 316 Hermlee in Hot Springs – caught some heavy dope charges following a SWAT raid at his residence.

No response came from the house.  SWAT Officers began to deploy CS gas into the house in an attempt to force the wanted parolee out of the house.  Officers soon noticed that smoke was coming out of the chimney at this house indicating that something was on fire.  There was no visible smoke when the SWAT Team arrived at the house.

After approximately an hour after the siege began, Parolee Jensen came crashing through the closed garage door, driving an SUV in reverse; straight towards approximately 6 SWAT Officers that had to take evasive actions in order to not be run over.  The fleeing parolee backed up into the road and then sped away.  He crashed into the woods at a dead end on Elice Circle.
