PITTSBURG — A Pittsburg man is in jail today after the Pittsburg Police Department special response team had to remove him from his attic.
According to a release from PPD, at about 5 a.m. Saturday, an officer received information that a wanted person, Dutch Floyd was at a residence located in the 1000 block of East 8th Street.
Officers surveilled the residence for a short time before contact was made with the tenant.
According to the release, information gathered at the scene led officers to believe that Floyd was armed with a handgun and hiding in the attic.
Several attempts that were made to try to get Floyd to surrender went unanswered. With the assistance of the Pittsburg Fire Department and their equipment, members of the response team officers made entry through an attic vent in the attic where Floyd, 28, was hiding and was ultimately taken into custody without further incident.
After searching the residence, officers allegedly located narcotics and drug paraphernalia, but no firearm.
Floyd was booked into the Crawford County jail on charges of possession of methamphetamine
possession of drug paraphernalia and felony obstruction.
Floyd also had multiple warrants from several jurisdictions for probation violations on his convictions on charges of aggravated assault, burglary and felony theft
