The event began at approximately 3:20 p.m. when the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office was notified by the Longmont Police Department that a suspect, known to be armed and dangerous, with multiple felony warrants out for his arrest was confirmed to be located at a home in the 300 block of Victoria Street in Berthoud.

A LETA alert was sent out at 3:48 p.m. asking residents in the area of First Street and Welch Avenue, east to Hubbell Street to remain in their homes until the situation was resolved.

Multiple units responded to the location blocking streets in the surrounding area.

According to LCSO Lt. Jeff Vanhook who was onsite during the incident, police set up a perimeter around the home and made phone contact with the suspect. A short time later the suspect exited the home, surrendered to police cooperatively and was taken into custody.

Residents were notified that the situation had been resolved and were able to resume normal activities at 4:35 p.m. via the LETA notification system.
