LANSING, MI (WLNS)  – An anonymous tip led Lansing Police to a three hour stand off

Police say a man with warrants out for his arrest locked himself in a house.

It happened on the 700 block of Jessop Ave. at around 1 in the afternoon.

Sgt. Del Kostanko from the Lansing Police was on the scene and explained how it all went down.

“Officers obtained information that the subject had a violent criminal past and may be armed so they went ahead and surrounded the house,” Sgt. Kostanko said. “Officers were able to negotiate him out of the residence with a successful conclusion.”
