A suspect with a bench warrant against him was taken into custody by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department on Thursday afternoon, about 4 p.m.

A sheriff’s deputy showed up at the residence to serve the warrant. The suspect barricaded himself in the house and made threats against himself. There were other people in the home as well so a hostage negotiator was called in. Several deputies and the new Preston Police Department MRAP vehicle and staff also responded to the call.

Earlier dispatch had reported shots fired during the standoff, but no shots were fired, according to Franklin County Sheriff Dave Fryar. The department apprehended the suspect after the negotiator talked him out of the home.

“Luckily no one got hurt,” said Fryar. “We were supposed to be in training. This was good training.”

    At least they had enough fire power to kill everyone before he killed himself!

    This artical is really a joke and nowhere near what actually happened. Whoever this reporter is should be fired for false reporting and why the hell would you bring this tank looking peice of work, to a non-violent call, that wasn’t even needed other than the police wanted a chance to pull it out and wave it around like a high schooler in the locker rooms.

    Towns don’t need tanks!! Sad that even our hometown preston citizen is engaged in willful propaganda! Whoever is responsible for bringing such an unwarranted militarization of Preston’s police force should be fired.

    Why in the world does Preston police have a mine resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicle? I am currently serving in the army and I just got back from a deployment in Afghanistan. We use these things for IEDs. Why did the city of Preston buy one. You could have bought the entire police force new squad cars (Dodge Chargers) for the price of that one item. From the front, it’s a MRAP Max which means it’s even more pricy then the MATV version. Talk about waste and abuse of city funds. I lived in Preston for close to 18 years and in all that time the biggest event was the fire at the grain growers. There is really no justification to have the expense let alone the need.
