Day Long Standoff In Pioneer!  

 

The Amador County Sheriff’s Office have been at a home off of Meadow Drive in Pioneer since early this morning, at the request of the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office, the Sheriff’s Office detectives and SWAT executed a search warrant associated with a violent crime that occurred in Calaveras County. During surveillance of the home units observed a female subject and several children leave the residence. Officers then created a perimeter around the residence and ordered the subject out. After he failed to comply, a decision was made to use chemical agents and less lethal options in an effort to detain and arrest the subject. A canine team from Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, SWAT and Calaveras County Sheriff’s Detectives are also on scene assisting. An assault weapon and a handgun have already been located and recovered at the scene.
