On Monday, March 16, 2020 about 08:00 hrs the Navarro County Sheriff's Office SWAT Team and Crisis Negotiations Unit were deployed to a barricaded person inside an 18-wheeler parked at the Dawson Exxon.
The suspect was wanted out of Navarro County for Aggravated Assault With a Deadly Weapon and was believed to be armed.
The suspect had refused to comply with earlier initial attempts by our patrol division and Dawson PD. to serve the arrest warrant at the location.
At approximately 09:30 hrs, a surrender was negotiated and the suspect was taken into custody without incident.
I applaud the combined efforts of our NCSO officers, working together with Dawson PD Chief Carter and Pct 4 Constable Thomas who resolved this incident by taking the suspect into custody without incident while keeping our citizens safe during this operation.
Sheriff Elmer Tanner
