TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Tallahassee Police Department have arrested a man after a nearly two hour standoff Tuesday.

According to authorities, just before 11 a.m., officers arrived at a residence in the 2500 block of Country Club Drive to arrest a suspect with felony warrants.

The suspect, identified as 28-year-old Jeremy Adkins, barricaded himself inside the home. TPD's Tactile Apprehension and Control Team was on scene and nearby residences were evacuated out of caution, officials stated.
