BELLEVUE, Ohio — A Bellevue man was taken into custody Thursday after a nearly five hour standoff with authorities.
Police were initially called to a residence located at 128 Grove St. in Bellevue around 11:30 a.m. for a man who was inside the residence “barricading himself.”
Authorities were advised that the man, identified as Dustin Bean, was possibly under the influence of several types of drugs and had felony warrants for his arrest.
The Sandusky County Sheriff’s Office responded to assist the Bellevue Police Department, and a short time after they arrived, the Sandusky County Regional Special Response Team (SRT) was called in.
After about five hours, police took Bean into custody and he was given proper medical treatment.
“This event could’ve ended much differently but with proper training, new drone and camera technology, and simple patience by the SRT team, it ended with no one getting hurt,” said Sandusky County Sheriff Christopher J. Hilton.
The Clyde Police Department also assisted on-scene.
