At approximately 3:16 p.m. Hibbing Police Department officers were dispatched to the area of the 2400 3rd Ave E for an unwanted male.

Upon arrival to the scene officers were told that the man had active felony warrants for his arrest and was barricaded inside a crawl space in the home.

Hibbing Police Chief Steven Estey said officers made several attempts to get the suspect to surrender willingly, but he did not cooperate.

St. Louis County Deputy Smith and K-9 Wesson arrived on scene to help.

According to a post from the Northland K9 Foundation's Facebook page, the man had multiple warrants including two felonies.

"The homeowner didn't want him there. He ignored numerous warnings and efforts by law enforcement to get him to come out peacefully, so K-9 Wesson was sent in. Despite the challenge of getting up and into the attic, the small space, lots of insulation and other factors, K-9 Wesson quickly apprehended the man who is now in jail."

The suspect was transported to Fairview Range for injuries sustained during the K-9 apprehension and later booked at the St. Louis County Jail.

The Chisholm Police Department and St. Louis County Sheriffs assisted in the call.
