JEFFERSON CITY - A man arrested after a standoff with Columbia police officers was charged in federal court Thursday.

According to a press release from the Department of Justice, federal prosecutors charged 23-year-old Deangelo Wayne Joe, Jr. with being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition.

Police arrested Joe early Thursday morning at the Links apartment complex after a 30 minute standoff with police. 

After taking Joe into custody, police said they found two stolen guns and multiple rounds of ammunition. Both the guns and ammo were reported stolen after a July 8 burglary, police said.
