CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A 40-year-old man is in custody after a SWAT situation ended in Clermont County overnight, Miami Township police said early Monday.

Officers responded to the 1200 block of Deblin Drive Sunday night for a report of an armed, dangerous man making threats.

A SWAT team was summoned, and police advised residents in a Facebook post to stay inside. They said they put up a two-block mandatory lockdown in the area.

At one point, a SWAT negotiator could be heard on a loudspeaker trying to coax the man out of the home.

He was taken into custody about 12:30 a.m. and was alone in the home, according to police.

They identified him in a news release as Scott Young.
