Fort Wayne, Ind – On Thursday, December 6, 2012, at approximately 1:54 p.m. the Crisis Response Team and Emergency Services Team of the Fort Wayne Police Department responded to a home in the 1900 block of Griswold Drive to assist Narcotics Detectives with a subject who had an outstanding Federal Fugitive Warrant and who was refusing to surrender.  Communication attempts with the warrant suspect were unsuccessful.  Shortly after the Emergency Services Team deployed a flash-bang, the suspect surrendered peacefully and was taken into custody without incident.


Information was received that a second subject, Silcott, was in the home.  She was also taken into custody and drug-related charges are pending.


The incident remains under investigation with the City of Fort Wayne Police Department and the Allen County Prosecuting Attorney’s office.  There is nothing further at this time.
