WATERLOO, IN — A man was taken into custody after a standoff at a Waterloo motel Wednesday morning.
Authorities were called at around 8 a.m. on a report of a man was pointing a gun at a female at the Twilight Inn at 2060 U.S. 6, just two miles west of I-69. The woman called 9-1-1 and officers responded to the motel, where the man locked himself in a room.
According to Indiana State Police, there had been another domestic situation at a different location, involving the pair who made their way to the motel, where a gun became a factor in the situation.
Just before 11 a.m., officers with the Auburn Police SWAT team took the man into custody peacefully. He was identified as 30-year-old Raymond Lothamer of Kendallville.
Lothamer was wanted on an active arrest warrant out of Noble County for Driving While Suspended. He’s also expected to face charges for Wednesday’s incident.
Details are still being sorted out as the investigation continues.
