Barricaded Suspect

On Thursday the 26th of September 2019, the City of Jeannette Police Department in conjunction with the PA Attorney General’s Office, received information that an individual with an arrest warrant was at 910 Gaskill Ave, a quadplex.  When Officers and Agents knocked on the apartment door a female answered and told them that the individual just ran down into the basement to barricade himself in.  At that time Officers and Agents backed out of the building and set up a perimeter.  The building was methodically cleared, one apartment at a time, including the basement.  It was determined that the actor was now in the empty downstairs apartment.  The Attorney General’s Special Operations Group (SOG) was on scene ready to gain entry into that apartment just as the actor came to the front window and was ordered to put his hands on the window and keep them there.  The SOG Team entered the apartment and the actor was taken into custody without incident.  We were given permission to search the apartments. Two (2) firearms along with Heroin, Cocaine and approx. $800 cash were recovered.  We were assisted by Penn Twp. PD and the Westmoreland County Emergency Management.
