FORT MYERS, FL.--A 10 hour stand off blocked off several streets and forced many people to leave their homes.
It all started just before 5 o'clock Tuesday.
Fort Myers Police tell WINK News, they rushed to the home of 51-year old Thomas Murray after his wife said Murray threatened to blow up their house and his Jeep.
"What was very alarming was the possibility of some bomb making materials," said Lt. Jay Rodriguez with Fort Myers Police.
Murray's wife also told investigators he has between one to two dozen firearms.
By 6 p.m. roads around Winkler Avenue were completely blocked off.
Officers carrying assault riffles surrounded Murray's home.
By 9 p.m.the S.W.A.T. Team was in full force, trying to communicate with Murray.
"Our negotiators were able to make some contact with him throughout the day, he seemed calm however that seemed to de-escalate as time went on," said Lt. Rodriguez.
Two hours later, a robot has surveillance on the home.
Shortly after 12:30 a.m. S.W.A.T. threw a flash bomb and raided the home.
Around 2:30 in the morning police say they couldn't find Murray.
Then about an hour later police tell WINK News they spotted Murray on the roof. He jumped off and ran in to a canal and refused to surrender.
10 hours after it all began, officers tased Murray after he continued to resist and then arrested him.
