Five-Hour Police Standoff Ends in Arrest of Fugitive



Montgomery County Police engaged in a five-hour standoff with a fugitive in Germantown on Friday morning, which ended in the arrest of a man wanted for violation of probation after a robbery conviction. The incident required the assistance of the MCPD Emergency Response Team.

At about 9:45 am on July 20, members of the Montgomery County Police Fugitive Team attempted to serve a warrant at a townhouse in the 11800 block of Elderberry Drive, near Fox Chapel Elementary School in Germantown.

The Fugitive Team spotted the subject of a warrant outside the front of the townhouse, according to 5th District Commander, Captain Mark Plazinski. “When the officers went to serve the warrant, the person who answered the door denied that the guy was in the house.”
