LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — North 18th Street in Lafayette is back open after a SWAT situation closed it down Sunday afternoon. 

Lafayette Police said officers went to a home to serve multiple arrest warrants. LPD confirmed early Monday morning that 20-year-old Devin Dillon was the man police were looking for. When officers arrived at the home, people in the house cooperated but police said Dillon didn't. Police said they believed Dillon might be dangerous and called in SWAT and negotiators for help.

Eventually, they got Dillon outside and arrested him. During the investigation, LPD blocked off 18th Street between Union and South Streets.

According to jail records, he was booked into the jail just after 7:30 P.M. yesterday. The Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office said Dillion faces multiple preliminary charges including resiting law enforcement and being wanted on warrant for another Indiana agency.
