FRANKLIN, OH (FOX19) -

A Franklin man wanted by police barricaded himself inside a Franklin home Thursday morning before surrendering peacefully.

It was the third time since Sunday that police in northern Warren County arrested 39-year-old Daryl S. Napier.

Franklin Police on Tuesday arrested Napier on a warrant for failing to appear in court on a receiving stolen property charge. He resisted that arrest and fought with an officer on Bryant Avenue in Franklin. Police had to use pepper spray in the arrest.

Police said they found a hypodermic needle and a substance believed to be heroin on Napier. He was transported to Atrium Medical Center in Middletown.

Police said Napier on Wednesday left the hospital against medical advice and is believed to have committed a home invasion on Union Road in Franklin Township where he acquired a large hunting knife.

Officers searched for Napier throughout the night. They found him hiding at his ex-wife's house in the 100 block of North Main Street in Franklin. He barricaded himself inside a crawlspace area on the second floor.

The Warren County Tactical Response Team was called to the scene. Once in place, Napier surrendered without incident. The standoff began at 5:25 a.m. and ended at 8:08 a.m. Franklin Police Chief Russ Whitman said Napier was not armed and the public was not in any danger.

Napier was taken to the Warren County jail on several charges including two counts of obstructing official business (a fifth degree felony), resisting arrest ( a first degree misdemeanor), possession of a drug abuse instrument (a first degree misdemeanor ), possession of heroin (a fifth degree felony) and burglary (a second degree felony).

Napier's first arrest by Carlisle Police was Sunday.

Carlisle Police investigated a breaking-and-entering at Dacraft Inc. on Dayton-Oxford Road that involved Napier. Police said Napier ran from the scene and a Franklin Police canine team tracked Napier to a wooded area to the rear of Phil's Auto Repair on Central Avenue.

After Napier ignored several warnings to show his hands and crawl out from underbrush where he was hiding, a police dog apprehended Napier. Police said they used the dog because it wasn't known if Napier was armed. Napier sustained several red marks and bruising to his right lower forearm and hand. Napier refused treatment.

Napier's bond has been set at $500,000. He will appear in court next week. 

The Warren County Sheriff's Office will be adding its own charges, police said.
