Another standoff situation occurred in Huron Township on Thursday morning — this time involving a felony warrant suspect.
According to Police Chief Everette Robbins, Huron Township Police Officers responded to the 24000 block of Otter Road on Thursday, Dec. 4 at 5:30 a.m. in an attempt to pick up a suspect on a felony warrant for home invasion first degree.
When the officers arrived at the location, the 32 year old Huron Township resident fled out of a second floor window and climbed onto the roof of the home.
The suspect refused to come down and face to face negotiations began, Robbins said.
The standoff continued until 7:30 a.m. when the suspect voluntarily surrendered. At that point, police took the suspect into custody without incident.
Robbins said that the felony warrant being served was in regards to a home invasion that occurred in the 19100 block of Savage Road on Sept. 5, 2014. The investigation for that home invasion was handled by the Huron Township Police Department.
The suspect was arraigned Thursday and is being held on a $200,000 bond.
It has been a busy week for Huron Township Police following another standoff situation that occured Monday evening which ended five hours later. That situation, which was also resolved without incident, involved a barricaded gunman that was threatening suicide by cop.
“Once again, our officers went above and beyond to ensure that this incident ended safely for everyone, including the subject that was arrested. I appreciate, as always, their efforts,” said Robbins.
