The Bell County Sheriff’s Department SWAT Team is currently clearing the scene at what was believed to be a standoff in Temple.

Authorities said they received a call around 4:30 p.m. about a stolen trailer and a man barricaded himself in a building at Charter Oak Drive and Riverside Trail.

Belton Police had found the missing trailer at a home located on Charter Oak Drive and Riverside. When they knocked on the door, no one answered.

A negotiator had been called in to try to contact the person they believed was in the home. Police discovered the suspect had a felony warrant out for his arrest. 

When police were able to get into the house, there was no one in the home. 

Police are not releasing the suspect's name.
