Local authorities attempting to serve a suspect with a felony warrant ended up in a stalemate with an armed suspect in Cambridge on Monday afternoon.
According to a release from Cambridge Chief of Police Dick Wayt, officers from the Cambridge Police Department and Guernsey County Common Pleas Court attempted to serve 46-year-old Dawn Bradford with a warrant at an apartment on Meadow Park Drive in Fairdale just after 2:30 p.m. Monday.
The suspect refused to answer the door and reportedly made threats to kill responding officers and to take her own life.
Police determined Bradford was armed, and a SWAT team was called in to assist.
After a standoff of approximately four hours, police entered the home and took the suspect into custody.
Bradford was shot by arresting officers during the apprehension and was transported to Southeastern Med for the treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
According to Capt. Tim Oliver of the Guernsey County Common Pleas Court, Bradford failed to appear for sentencing for an OVI offense on June 13, at which time her bond was revoked and a failure-to-appear warrant was issued for her arrest.
Chief Wayt said the case has been turn over to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
