Nampa Police attempted to make contact with Angel Pena, 24, at a hotel in the 600 block of Northside Boulevard in Nampa.
But when Pena opened the door to his room at about 1 a.m. Wednesday, he quickly slammed it shut and barricaded himself in the room, according to a report from the Nampa Police Department.
Officers thought Pena was armed, so the Nampa Tactical Response Team was called to the scene. Nampa police negotiators were unsuccessful in contacting the Caldwell resident through the use of a phone and a loudspeaker.
The Nampa Bomb Unit then used a robot equipped with cameras and communications equipment to enter the room. Negotiators spoke with Pena, who came out of the room and surrendered without incident, police said.
Pena was arrested on a warrant and taken to Canyon County Jail.
The Caldwell Police Department and Canyon County Sheriff's Office also were involved in apprehending Pena.
