Barricaded Man In Police Custody

FRENCHTOWN TWP. (WWJ) – A man has been arrested after he reportedly barricaded himself inside a mobile home with weapons Tuesday afternoon in Monroe County.

The incident prompted a partial evacuation of Frenchtown Township’s Kimberly Estates, with no one being allowed to enter. 

The showdown grabbed the attention of nearby workers, including Jay Peters at the B and P Speed Shop.

“There were heilcopters flying overhead. SWAT team vehicles going by, going up north here — about a half-mile north of the shop,” Peters told WWJ.

Police have not released details about the case or the name of the man in custody.
