SWAT Team Deployed To Remove Man In Fort Collins Motel Room
The Larimer County Regional SWAT team was called out on Sunday night to deal with a man barricaded in a Motel 6 in Fort Collins, according to a post on the Larimer County Sheriff's Office Facebook page.
According to the post, the sheriff's office got a call at 8:21 p.m. about a man who was threatening people with a 10-12 inch knife at the Motel 6 at 3900 Mulberry Street.
More reports came in saying the man, identified as 26-year-old Joshua Jackson, was barricaded in his room and possibly had another weapon besides the knife.
The SWAT team was called out to deal with the situation. When they arrived they found that Jackson had used furniture to block the door and was refusing to come out.
The surrounding motel rooms were emptied of people as deputies tried to talk Jackson into coming out. But he refused to leave, so what the post termed as ''chemical munitions" were sent into the room. He finally gave up and left the room at 12:13 am Monday.
He was arrested and taken to the Larimer County Jail, and was facing the following charges, according to the post:
Menacing – F5
Criminal Mischief – F6
Refusal to Leave Premises Upon Request – M1
Attempted 3rd Degree Assault on a Peace Officer x3 – M2
Violation of Bail Bond Conditions x6 – 4 Felony, 2 Misdemeanor
Bond was set at $9,000.
