Sioux Falls Standoff Ends Peacefully

On Wednesday, law enforcement received information that an individual wanted on felony drug charges was located in central Sioux Falls.  Law enforcement received information that the suspect was known to be armed with more than one weapon and that he had made threats toward law enforcement.

As officers were observing the residence, the suspect fled and was seen entering a home at 513 S. Western Ave.  A perimeter was quickly established.

Around 1:50am Thursday morning, after a nearly 8 hour standoff with police, 25 year old Derek Jordan Arapahoe of Sioux Falls surrendered without further incident.

The Sioux Falls man was arrested for the felony warrants. Additional charges may be possible.
