BELL ACRES BOROUGH, Pa. — One person is in custody after a SWAT situation in Bell Acres Borough.
Chopper 11 flew over the scene around 4:30 p.m. Thursday and could see a SWAT vehicle in the area of Camp Meeting Road and Witherow Road.
Investigators wouldn't provide details, but said police activity began around 3:15 p.m.
"I’m really shocked. I just came home. We have a really quiet neighborhood, nice people who live in the neighborhood," said neighbor Cathy Thein.
When we were able to get closer to the home, we saw a police officer guarding the house to make sure no one went in.
Thein told Channel 11 a family lives there and she sometimes talks to them.
"Hi and bye chit-chat. What’s going on in the neighborhood. The wife is lovely and the husband is very nice and he little boy is nice. I feel really terrible and bad that this has happened," Thein said.
While SWAT officers negotiated, neighbors were turned around on Camp Meeting Road.
It wasn't open until police got a man into custody.
