Dothan Standoff Recap

At a press conference Thursday afternoon, the Dothan Police displayed the weapons seized following Wednesday's standoff in the Martin Homes area.

Wednesday's events stemmed from a search for 17-year-old Desmond Griffin who was wanted for burglary who was in an apartment with others.

Police, along with the SWAT team successfully talked two of the men out of the apartment and in the end, six were arrested.

Dothan Police Department Chief John Powell said, "His actions that he's accused of committing were progressively getting more violent and I’m very thankful that we were able to get him in custody and let the courts make the determination as to what kind of penalty he'll face."

Investigators say the guns seized Wednesday could be involved in several cases around the Wiregrass this past year.
