MIAMISBURG, Ohio (WDTN) – One person is in custody after a SWAT standoff in Miamisburg Tuesday.
Montgomery County Regional Dispatch said police went to the 500 block of Cherry Hill Drive just before 4:30 p.m. for a wanted person.
Detective Sergeant Jeff Muncy with the Miamisburg Police Department said the incident started when an officer saw a man that had several felony drug warrants. When police tried to detain the suspect, he fled into an apartment.
SWAT was called to the scene after the man barricaded himself in the home and refused to come out. Muncy said it was known to police that the suspect had a gun.
Police used a PA system and Facebook messenger to speak to the suspect and try to get him to come out. The suspect eventually left the home after crews on scene shot pepper canisters into the apartment.
Muncy said no one else was in the home with the suspect during the standoff. No one was injured. The suspect may face charges of inducing panic, obstructing and resisting arrest.
