METHUEN — Chief Scott J. McNamara reports that the Methuen Police Department arrested an individual who allegedly barricaded themselves inside a residence Sunday evening.
The individual was taken into custody without incident shortly before 9 p. m. Sunday. A live round of ammunition was found inside the residence, and Methuen Police are continuing to investigate.
Shortly before 5 p.m., Sunday, Methuen Police responded to a home on Arabian Drive for a report that a suspect in a prior incident was at that location.
The Northeast Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council (NEMLEC) SWAT Team responded to the scene to provide mutual aid support.
Due to the domestic violence law of 2014, Methuen Police are prohibited from releasing additional information about the suspect or the circumstances of the incident.
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
