By Jeff Raasch
CEDAR RAPIDS - Officers dressed in SWAT gear helped take a wanted man into custody this morning in northwest Cedar Rapids.
Neighbors said the man came out of a white house at 1243 Apache Trail NW around 9:30 a.m. and was handcuffed without incident.
One neighbor said she saw 16 officers dressed in tactical gear near her house. Several of them were carrying assault rifles. She said the man, who she estimated was about 20 years old, came out with his hands up.
"I saw lots of gun barrels," said the neighbor, who declined to give her name.
Police have not released any information about the incident, except to say that it involved a case in Iowa City.
