Olalla man arrested after 6½-hour standoffPosted: Updated:
OLALLA, Wash. (AP) _ Following a 6½-hour standoff, police tonight captured an Olalla man accused of unlawfully taking his children and barricading himself inside a home in South Kitsap. Just after 8 p.m., the 39-year-old man emerged from a house and was captured by the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office SWAT team.
The SWAT team had been outside the home since about 1:30 p.m. The man and a woman who was also inside the house were taken to Pierce County Jail. The man's four children ... ages 6, 8, 10 and 12 ... were unharmed, as were seven other children found in the house.
A spokesman for the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office says the seven other children apparently were the women's children.
Tacoma police say that the man took his four children from Tacoma area schools and drove them to his house today. They say he had only limited custody of them.
Tacoma police then contacted the Kitsap and Pierce County sheriff's offices.
