Witnessing a crime and reporting it can be just as frightening as being the victim of a crime. Here’s what you should do if you witness illegal activity.

A man wanted on felony warrants barricaded himself inside the attic of a Nampa house in a nearly five-hour standoff early Thursday morning, surrendering only after the SWAT team arrived.

Murray Casey Carter, 39, was arrested on multiple domestic violence warrants, according to a press release from the Canyon County Sheriff’s Office. Additional charges are pending.

Sheriff’s investigators got a tip at about 2:30 a.m. that Carter was staying at a residence in the 1600 block of Primrose Drive in Nampa.

They followed up, and the homeowner told them that Carter was barricaded in the attic. Deputies tried to negotiate with Carter to come out, but he refused, the release says.

The Canyon County SWAT team was called to the scene, and it secured the perimeter and houses nearby. At about 7:15 a.m., Carter surrendered to police.
