A man surrenders to the Madison County SWAT team in Huntsville

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – A Huntsville man was arrested after the Madison County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) SWAT team was able to negotiate with him to surrender, authorities say.

Mario Martez Dillard, 31, was arrested Monday and charged with probation revocation and third-degree robbery.

The MCSO says Huntsville police officers spotted Dillard riding his bike in the Eastbrook Drive area on Monday afternoon. When Dillard realized this, officers say he ran to a nearby house.

Knowing that Dillard had active felony warrants, a perimeter was set up and the MCSO SWAT team came to the scene to negotiate.

According to the MCSO, Dillard surrendered peacefully soon after.

Authorities say it was thanks to the training and cooperation of all the agencies involved that the situation ended on a high note.

Dillard remains in the custody of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office without bond.
