ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Anderson Co. deputies say a man and woman wanted for burglaries in Georgia were arrested after  barricading themselves inside an Anderson County hotel.

The standoff occurred Saturday evening at the Days Inn on George Smith Mill Road, deputies said. 

Deputies said they arrived at the motel after getting word that Senia Dotson, 28, and James Colby, 22, were holed up there. Per incident reports, both suspects had active warrants for burglary and Georgia was willing to extradite.

Deputies said a front desk worker recognized photos of the suspects but advised deputies they checked in under different names.

Deputies said they then went to the suspect's room and tried to get the pair to exit. The SWAT team mobilized at the scene and the suspects surrendered after several hours.

Both Dotson and Ray were arrested and charged with fugitive from justice.
