Police standoff in Dillon ends with detainment of felon

A report of an armed subject near Dillon Valley West Condominiums resulted in the lockdown of Dillon Valley Elementary School Tuesday afternoon.

Summit County Sheriff Jamie FitzSimons said a wanted felon was taken into custody without further incident around 5:10 p.m. that evening. He was not armed with a weapon upon detainment, Fitzsimons noted, and no weapon was found at the scene despite the 911 caller’s claim.

Police activity in the Dillon Valley subdivision led to restrictions on traffic in the area throughout the standoff.

FitzSimons said the investigation is ongoing as of 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The incident was far enough from the school that police did not take further measures outside of the precautionary lockdown.

The suspect’s identity and any charges related to the incident were not disclosed as of publication.
