Man taken into custody following situation that caused evacuation of Tiffin homes



A Tiffin man with a warrant for his arrest was taken into custody following a nearly four hour standoff Thursday evening.

Around 8:40 p.m., Tiffin Police responded to a report of a suicidal man at a residence in the 300 block of S. Washington St.

Ray C. Moore, 39, was charged with two misdemeanors including drug abuse instruments and obstruction of official business, according to Tiffin-Fostoria Municipal Court records.

Several nearby homes were evacuated for safety and parts of the street were blocked off.

Moore was inside of a garage, where he made it known to police that he had a weapon and threatened to harm himself.

Moore didn’t exit the garage for nearly four hours, when he was taken into custody by law enforcement.

Tiffin Fire/Rescue Division, the Fremont Police Department, and the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office also assisted at the scene.

No one was hurt at the scene.
