MILFORD, Del. – Milford Police say a barricade situation led to the arrest of a man late last week.

We’re told that officers responded to a residence in the 200 block of Southeast 2nd Street on Friday for a report of a domestic situation involving a firearm. Officers tried to make contact with 36-year-old Brandt Craft, who reportedly failed to exit the residence at the request of officers, leading to a barricade situation that lasted several hours.

During the incident, several roads in the area were closed, neighbors were evacuated, and the Delaware State Police Special Operations Response Team, Conflict Management, and Explosive Ordinance Disposal were called to assist.

Police say the situation eventually ended peacefully when Craft complied and exited the home. He was subsequently taken into custody and charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, endangering the welfare of a child, and aggravated menacing.

Craft is currently bing held at SCI on an $82,000 cash bail.
