SAND SPRINGS — Sand Springs police said they have arrested a suspect that was involved in a standoff with police earlier Monday morning.
The owner of the pawn shop says on March 20th his shop was broken into and burglars stole $25,000 worth of merchandise. He hopes they catch whoever broke in this morning. #SandSprings #standoff @KJRH2HD pic.twitter.com/9DIUOgLBvW— Gitzel Puente (@gitzelpuenteTV) April 8, 2019
This all started around 2 a.m. when an alarm sounded at a pawn shop.
When officers arrived, they found evidence that a suspect, later identified as Alex Milner, 31, may be hiding somewhere in that building.
They sent K9 officers in, and used pepper balls to get Milner out, but they weren't successful.
The SWAT team was called in, but after searching the building, they found a hole in the attic that Milner may have escaped out of.
Milner was later discovered hiding elsewhere and was arrested, police said.
Police said Milner broke his ankle, so he was taken to a local hospital, but will be booked.
