LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The Lancaster County Sheriffs Office arrested a 29-year-old Lincoln man for violating parole after negotiations Monday morning.

Chief Deputy Ben Houchin said the metro fugitive task force was called to Trevaughn Brown’s apartment after Brown refused to come out of his apartment near 24th and Superior, requiring a larger police response and a local school and daycare to be alerted.

LSO said Brown was wanted for a parole violation stemming from a conviction for first-degree assault and use of a weapon to commit a felony from Douglas County that occurred in 2011. Brown was known to have possession of a weapon as recently as two months ago.

Houchin said he wasn’t aware of what Brown did to violate parole. Task Force Members attempted to have Brown open the door or come out of the apartment for two hours.

Campbell Elementary, located nearby was notified and put in lock down as well as the Little Munchkinland Daycare.

Campbell Elementary School was in a “secure status” during the incident, meaning doors were locked and monitored. The principal of the school sent a message assuring parents children were safe and learning was continuing as normal.

According to LSO, the Sheriff’s Office Tactical Response Unit, including the new Bearcat armored vehicle, was in place and the Nebraska State Patrol’s drone was on scene. Brown came out of the apartment and was arrested without incident at 11:09 a.m. Once the apartment was cleared, the school and day care were notified and resumed normal operations.
