ANDERSON, Ind. (WANE)–Like a scene straight out of a movie, parole agents and ISP detectives in Anderson were stuck in a four hour standoff with a fugitive on Wednesday, according to Indiana State Police.
On Wednesday afternoon, parole officers and ISP detectives were tracking Barry J. Willis, a 47-year-old fugitive considered armed and dangerous in the Anderson area who was wanted for a parole violation.
Police spotted Willis outside a home and when they tried to talk to him he fled inside.
For the next four hours, police used an armored vehicle, a drone, a robot and a K-9 along with tear gas to try and coax Willis out of the home while attempting to communicate with him using a PA system.
Eventually they fired tear gas into the attic and Willis then surrendered.
He was taken into custody at Madison County jail.
