UPDATE: About the police response on Puget Ridge

12:54 PM: Thanks for the tips about a sizable police response on Puget Ridge, along 18th SW near SW Juneau. Police tell us they are dealing with a person believed to be in crisis who is inside a residence. They’re hoping to make contact and get them out safely.

2:54 PM: We’ve confirmed with police what neighbors reported in comments – the person is out of the house and in custody, safely, no one hurt.

    Police and Fire still present per phone call from wife. We live right up the street on 18th (to south)

      Yes, it might be a while, sounds like.

    I’m at 18th & Brandon.  Police are blocking the street in front of my house.  I was ordered back inside.

    We live right off Juneau & 18th the Ford Car that is parked in front of my home… is welcome to use my driveway. They are putting up yellow tape…. The trash guys are doing a great job at taking our recycling. Phew.

    I live down the street and ‘accidentally’ walked my dog by the blockade. The officer I talked to said ‘Stand Off Situation’ and told us to keep our distance – ‘It may take a while’

     The Seattle Police Swat Team just showed  up! Jesus. Mary and Joseph. Praying.

      That’s not uncommon in a situation where they are trying to get someone out (and have been trying for a while).

    A single male has exited the house and is with police.

    PD not asking another person to exit the house.

    Looks like it is over.  Heard the police ask him to come out and he responded that he was. 

  • Pigeonpoint January 17, 2018 (2:38 pm)

    Looks like situation is under control, police are leaving the area.

      Thanks for the updates! We’ve been monitoring by radio … but not everything happens there, or sometimes gets lost when the scanner stops on another frequency.

    that’s great.

    That was full force SPD and Swat!! Both ends of the streets from Brandon to Juneau were blocked off and I live about 4 houses down from the drug house. I could not drive or walk to my house until the Swat team tank negotiated the people out of the house. Us neighbors had to park a block away and watch K-9 and officers with assault weapons approach this place…waited over an hour before it was cleared!!! CRAZY and scary too!!!

       What is the address of the drug house? Thanks

Sorry, comment time is over.
