Standoff Ends Peacefully In Sioux Falls

Standoff Ends Peacefully In Sioux Falls

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A burglary suspect barricaded himself in a northern Sioux Falls house for several hours before surrendering to police.

Sheriff Mike Milstead says that when negotiations failed Wednesday afternoon, a flash bang was used to create a diversion to get 36-year-old David Jeremy Neuroth Jr. out of the home.

He gave up peacefully and nobody was injured.

Neuroth had been wanted for a home break-in Tuesday night. He was found Wednesday at the home of his cousin, who got out safely.

The sheriff says authorities were cautious when approaching the home because Neuroth had used a gun in the earlier crime.

The roads were blocked in the area of North Golden Nugget Avenue and East 70th Street during the standoff that also impacted the dismissal at some Brandon Valley schools.
