Barricade situation in The Lakes ends with 2 people in custody

Posted: Updated:

Metro police and SWAT teams responded to a barricade situation Saturday afternoon.

Lt. Ken Romane said police responded to a house near Grand Canyon and Desert Inn at 2:15 p.m. to arrest an alleged felon reported to be at the house. When police knocked on the door, the woman police were looking for ran out of the house and was detained.

During the investigation, police determined that a second suspect may be in the house, according to Romane. Police set up a perimeter around the house to keep the suspect from escaping.

Romane said when SWAT made entry into the house, they did find a second subject inside. The man found was an ex-felon and was in the attic with firearms. An undisclosed amount of guns were found in the home.

Both suspects were arrested without incident.
