Iowa Authorities Respond To Five Hour Standoff

plymouth co, ia

Multiple Iowa agencies were involved in a five hour standoff with a wanted man on Friday night.

Plymouth County Sheriff's Office says the U.S. marshals and the northern Iowa Fugitive Task Force attempted to arrest Geovany Gonzalez-Gonzalez who was wanted for failing to appear to a court hearing after being charged with drug trafficking.

Around three p.m. Friday, they found him in a rural home on K-18 South. Family members said he had a pistol and was suicidal and the Sheriff say he refused to surrender.

After several attempts with a negotiator, Gonzalez-Gonzalez finally came out just after 7:30 p.m. He was booked into Woodbury County Jail.
