Arrest Made After Barricade Situation in Salisbury

Posted: Updated:
SALISBURY, Md. - A barricade situation in Salisbury Tuesday leads to one arrest.

Salisbury Police say officers were dispatched to a building at the Island Club Apartment complex just before 8:30 a.m. Tuesday to investigate a reported dispute between neighbors. Officers say 50-year-old Ira Neal Finkle threatened to run his neighbors over with his car. Police say Finkle was also overheard stating that he had a gun.

Police say when officers attempted to contact Finkle at his apartment, he refused to answer the door. After efforts were exhausted by the officers, the Salisbury Police Department's Hostage Negotiation Team and Tactical Team were activated and responded to the scene, according to police. 

After a short period of time, police say negotiators and tactical team members successfully established contact with Finkle and he was taken into custody without further incident. Finkle was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center for evaluation, according to police.

The investigation remains on-going at this time and anyone with information is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department (410)548-3165 or Crime Solvers (410) 548-1776.
