Police Standoff Nets Home Invasion Suspect

The standoff, in Tyler, began around 4:45 this afternoon at 1020 West Eight Street. That's near Vine Avenue and Birdwell Elementary School.

Police were attempting to serve 3 aggravated robbery arrest warrants to 23 year old Dathan Troas Sears. For more than an hour police officers and the SWAT team surrounded the house. Police called in the negotiations unit and special operations. But, a little after 6 o'clock police got a tip that Sears was at a house a block away.

"We received information a short while ago that he may be at different location at West 7th street and had officers go over to that location. We did locate him at that residence and he was taken into custody without any force being used," says Officer Don Martin, Public Information Officer.

Sears is in police custody. He's accused of robbing three people in a Tyler home invasion just a few weeks ago.
