Dec. 4-A police standoff in rural Parke County on Friday night with a wanted man who had barricaded himself inside a home came to a peaceful end, Indiana State Police said Saturday.
Brandon Crockett, 43, of Lebanon, was booked on charges of dealing methamphetamine (felony warrant); resisting law enforcement (misdemeanor): possession of marijuana (misdemeanor); and possession of drug paraphernalia (misdemeanor).
About 5 p.m. Friday, troopers attempted to serve an active warrant out of Porter County on Crockett, ISP said in a news release. The warrant was being served at 6929 West Kates in Kingman.
