MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Police say a man wanted for trying to cash a stolen check in Mesa is in custody after a barricade situation.

The name of the suspect wasn't immediately released Wednesday.

Police say he tried to cash a stolen check at a check-cashing store before fleeing to a vacant building near Country Club and University.

That started a brief barricade situation.

Authorities say one SWAT team officer suffered minor injuries that weren't inflicted by the suspect.
