The Smyrna Police Department’s Special Weapons and Tactics Team resolved a situation without incident last Wednesday afternoon, with some of the neighborhood’s residents showing some appreciation.

Smyrna Police Department officers had been dispatched to the 100 block of Bane Drive. An armed man was barricaded in a home. SPD’s SWAT Team was called to the scene and after negotiations the man was taken into custody without incident.

According to Smyrna Police Capt. Jeff Dwyer, residents provided a cooler filled with ice and two cases of water and seven pizzas for the fire, police and EMS personnel at the scene.

“We established an area safely away from the active scene and neighbors brought the water and pizza to that area,” Dwyer said. “Smyrna Police Department appreciates the support of our community.”
