SIDNEY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Police say a suspect, who was holed up in a home northeast of Greenville, has surrendered.

Troopers say he came out of his home around 3:50 p.m. Thursday on Miller Road near Muskrat Road in Sidney Township.

Michigan State Police say they went there around 8:45 a.m. Thursday to try to arrest a 46-year-old Ionia man. When they arrived, the suspect ran into the house and barricaded himself inside.

Authorities say the suspect was armed and they thought he may hurt himself or others.

MSP surrounded the home and its Emergency Support Team — a SWAT team —responded.

The suspect is wanted on outstanding warrants for home invasion, a weapons charge and taking a weapon into a prison.

There were no immediate reports of injuries. No one else was in the home. MSP said it had informed neighbors of what was happening and evacuated some nearby homes.

The man was taken to the Newaygo County Jail and may be facing additional charges in Montcalm County
