IDAHO FALLS – The Idaho Falls Police Department has released the name of the man arrested following six-hour standoff.
Police say 27-year-old Rory D. Neddo of Idaho Falls was arrested for an Idaho Department of Correction’s parole violation warrant, two Idaho Falls warrants for domestic violence and felony possession of a firearm.
According to reports, at approximately 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 6, 2016, the Idaho Falls Police Department was attempting to serve warrants to Neddo at the 500 block of 10th Street in Idaho Falls. Due to threats of violence, officers made phone contact with Neddo. Neddo then made further threats of violence, and a single gunshot was heard from within the residence. There were no injuries reported. Neddo then barricaded himself inside the home. Officers began negotiations which continued for several hours.
Neighbors were instructed to shelter in place, and the public was notified to stay clear of the area.
At 2.38 p.m., officers introduced a chemical agent into the residence in an attempt to get Neddo to come out of the home. At approximately 4:18 p.m., officers introduced additional chemical agents into the home, and at 4:19 p.m., Neddo was taken into custody and booked into the Bonneville County Jail.
“We would like to thank neighbors, friends and family who were supportive of our presence in the neighborhood,” states Idaho Falls Police Department Chief Mark McBride. “We would also like to thank the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office for their support during this operation,” adds McBride.
