DENVER — It was a tense morning in a west Denver neighborhood when a swat team moved in on a suspected burglar Saturday.

Caution tape surrounded the area of 23rd and Lowell near Sloan’s Lake park. Police were called to the area about a burglary early Saturday morning and quickly arrested a suspect at the scene.

When officers heard there could be a second armed suspect, they called in a SWAT team and sent a police dog and a robot to search the home.

“When I looked over, I saw a couple of SWAT team members and policemen up on the roof with their rifles. You never see that in this neighborhood,” said Jennifer Ryan.

Authorities didn’t find a second suspect.

The man who was arrested is facing burglary charges.
