Christmas Eve standoff

On Christmas Eve, the Butler County Sheriff’s Office and the Special Response Team with the Greenville Police Department assisted the Wilcox County Sheriff’s Office on a call regarding subjects refusing to exit a house, located just over the Butler-Wilcox county line a few miles past County Road 5.

According to Butler County Sheriff Danny Bond, the situation ended “without anyone getting hurt” and “the subjects arrested.”

Stolen property was recovered and the investigation is ongoing, according to Bond.
