(Le Mars) -- At about 3:00 p.m. Friday, Deputy United States Marshals and the Woodbury County Task Force Officers from the Northern Iowa Fugitive Task Force attempted to arrest Geovany Gonzales-Gonzales at a rural residence on K-18 South in Plymouth County.

Gonzalez-Gonzales was wanted for failing to appear as ordered for a court hearing.  Gonzalez-Gonzalez was originally charged with drug trafficking.  Upon making contact with family members at the residence, Marshals were informed that Gonzales-Gonzales was in the house and had a .380 pistol in his possession.  Gonzalez-Gonzalez was ordered out of his residence, however refused to surrender.  Family members indicated that Gonzalez-Gonzalez was suicidal.

U.S. Marshals requested the assistance of the Plymouth/Sioux/Le Mars Police tactical team to assist with the arrest.  Iowa State Patrol officers as well as the Tactical Team and the Woodbury County Sheriff's Office arrived to assist.  At about 7:30 p.m. an Iowa State Patrol negotiator, negotiated the safe surrender of Gonzalez-Gonzalez to law enforcement personnel.  Gonzalez-Gonzalez was booked into the Woodbury County Jail pending further court hearings.

Officers at the scene were assisted by Siiouxland Paramedics and the Akron Fire Department.
