Police Officers Involved In Standoff With Chattooga Man

On Thursday of this week Summerville Police Department, along with other local Law Enforcement Agencies were involved in a Standoff with a Chattooga County man.


Per a Press Release from the Summerville Police Department:

On January 28, 2021 the Summerville Police Department attempted to conduct a welfare check on a female who was possibly being held against her will at #150 Fourth Street in Summerville. During the attempt to make contact with this female, officers encountered Jordan Dillard, 28, who was suspected of holding the female against her will.
Initially Dillard refused to open the door for officers or allow access to the female who was in the residence. It was determined that Dillard had an active arrest warrant against him for failing to appear in Superior Court. Dillard, who was believed to be armed, refused to surrender himself to law enforcement and a standoff ensued. During this standoff negotiators eventually convinced Dillard to come out and surrender. Following Dillard’s surrender, the female came out of the residence unharmed. A search warrant was executed on the residence and multiple firearms were recovered. One of these firearms was equipped with a 50 round drum magazine and was on the floor next to the window where Dillard had been previously speaking with negotiators. Additionally a quantity of marijuana, methamphetamine, ecstasy (MDMA), liquid THC cartridges, scales, and baggies was recovered. At the time of this release Dillard has been charged with the following offenses:
 False Imprisonment
