Appleton police believe the suspect in a lengthy standoff on the city’s north side was involved with selling drugs.
Police Chief Todd Thomas says 25-year-old Sebastian Endres of Appleton was hiding in an attic of a home in the 800 block of W. Frances Street. Police believe Endres and his girlfriend, 28-year-old Courtney Vera, injected heroin just before the SWAT team got there last night.
Thomas says an officer saw Endres go into the house yesterday afternoon.
Police say Endres had a gun near him when he was taken into custody.
The standoff lasted for nearly 11 hours. Thomas says it took time to search the home for Endres.
Thomas says Vera surrendered several hours earlier, after officers used gas in the house. She had two warrants for her arrest.
