On November 2nd, 2017, Officers with the Benson Police department along with agents from the CEE-VI drug and gang task force and Swift County Sheriff’s deputies, responded to a residence in the city of Benson to serve an arrest warrant on a male individual wanted by the MN Department of corrections. When Officers made entry into the residence the male barricaded himself in a locked bedroom and indicated that he had a firearm.
Officers backed out of the residence, set up a perimeter and requested assistance from the West Central SWAT team.
Upon arrival, SWAT team negotiators were able to make contact with the male and successfully talk the male into surrendering. He was taken into custody by SWAT team members without further incident.
During the incident officers went door to door of homes in the immediate area advising residents of the situation and that city hall was open if they wished to leave until the situation was resolved.
The Benson Police Department was assisted on scene by the Swift County Sheriff’s office, CEE-VI drug and gang task force, West Central SWAT team, MN State Patrol and the Swift County/Benson ambulance service and Benson Street Department.
This is an information post. This is not meant to alarm people. In answer to some questions we don't do anything with wild animals living in the wild.
We received a report today of a possible Cougar/Mountain Lion spotting south of Lake Moore along Co Rd 25. It was early this morning and the reporting party did not get a great look do to the lighting conditions but knew it was a different shaped head and not a deer. The only thing we can really do with this information is to pass it on to you for safety. Please use caution if dealing with ANY wild animal. Thank you to the person who reported this sighting.
