A man is in Milam County Jail after a standoff with Cameron Police.

Police responded to the 400 block of South Columbus on a civil disturbance call.

When police arrived, the victim told police there were two people in the home taking items. Police were able to make contact with a woman inside the home who identified that there was a man in the house as well.

The man, identified by police as Victor Hernandez, 33, used a false name when officers tried to determine if he was in the home legally.

The woman gave police information that contradicted what Hernandez said and informed police that the Hernandez possibly had possession of a glock firearm.

With the information the woman gave police, they were able to correctly identify Hernandez, who had two felony warrants from Bell County.

He barricaded officers out of the home and would not respond to police commands.

Cameron Police Department TACT team, Milam County Sheriff’s Department, the Department of Safety, were able to force entrance into the home and arrest Hernandez.

Hernandez was charged with Failure to Identify-Wanted Individual, Evading Arrest-Detention in a Motor Vehicle, Failure to Appear.

Hernandez is currently being held in the Milam County Jail.
