Police were sent to the house around 6 p.m. Sunday. Officers believed the man had several weapons inside the house, and they soon set up a perimeter and called in a SWAT team.

The man, Trenton Nielsen, was taken into custody without incident around 8:50 p.m. He was arrested on suspicion of terroristic threats, false imprisonment and use of a weapon to commit a felony.

Other residents of the home told officers they were held against their will.

There were no reports of any shots being fired or any injuries.
