Montgomery police had initially responded to a domestic violence call at the home, but learned Jones might be inside.

Shortly before 9 a.m., SWAT officers entered the home and arrested Jones without incident.

Police said the infant inside was sleeping at the time, and was not harmed.

Jones was being taken to the Kane County Jail to await extradition to Michigan.
