A 911 call was received at 4:43 p.m. on April 1, 2018, from a female stating that she and her boyfriend were being held by a number of men with weapons in a residence in the 1300 block of Home Avenue.
Patrol officers were quickly on the scene and contained the immediate area while trying to gather more information. A full incident command was set up with tactical officers and negotiators to deal with the situation.
Contact was made with the homeowners who were out of town. They advised there should not be anyone in the residence. In order to ensure the safety of anyone possibly inside the residence, tactical officers entered and confirmed it was vacant just after 7:00 p.m. During the search a firearm and suspected drugs were located.
