A man wanted on drug charges in the Des Moines area is jailed after a standoff in Grinnell. Police say the incident started last night about 6:30 at a home in Grinnell when a bail bondsman needed to locate a man wanted on arrest warrants. On arrival, officers saw 39-year-old David Abbott of Urbandale flee from the garage and into the house.
Police contacted the owner of the home, who wasn’t in the house. He told police Abbott could be armed and depressed. Nearby houses were evacuated and a tactical team was brought in. About an hour and a half later, Abbott came out, unarmed, and was taken into custody. A search turned up a weapon and drug paraphernalia.
