SWAT Call Out on North Florence St. 11/08/14

11/08/14 Aurora, CO – Aurora Police responded to 1373 N. Florence St. today in the form of a large SWAT call out in an effort to take a felony menacing suspect into custody.  The suspect, 35 year old Mario Lopez, was wanted in Arapahoe County on a felony menacing charge and was also wanted in the city of Aurora on a municipal charge of carrying a concealed weapon.  Officers tried to contact the suspect around 9AM today and APD SWAT was called to the scene around noon.  The cops spent most of the day trying to coax the suspect out of the house with both telephone calls and a police bullhorn.  After being teargassed around nightfall, Lopez, who had been located in the crawlspace of a house, was arrested without incident.  Aurora PD was assisted by both the Arapahoe County and Adams county Sheriff’s offices on this large tactical call out.  Neighbors may have seen the large police presence in this North Aurora neighborhood, even including cops in sniper positions.  Shane Anthony reporting AuroraNews1.com
