PARADISE, Calif. - A Paradise man on felony probation was arrested Sunday night for grand theft and false impersonation, the Paradise Police Department says. 

Police said it served a felony arrest warrant for 26-year-old Hunter Harris around 8:30 p.m. at his home on Village Parkway. Harris is probation for a robbery, police said. 

When officers arrived, they found a vehicle they said was associated with Harris and attempted to contact him. 

As officers were making announcements outside of the home, police say they saw a man looking out an upstairs window. Police said he quickly closed the curtains. 

Officers said he refused to comply with officers so police requested deputies from the Butte County Sheriff’s Office. 

Deputies set a perimeter around the home as officers forced their way into it. Police said Harris was located and detained. 

Police said they found a woman and three children in the home. They were not injured, police said.

Harris was arrested on the warrant charges of grand theft and false impersonation. He was also arrested on felony charges of child abuse and violation of probation. 

"Harris created a dangerous situation with potential for the children to be harmed, by hiding in the apartment with the children,” police said in a news release.

Harris was also booked on a misdemeanor charge of resisting a police officer.
