MINDEN, Neb. Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) SWAT team have arrested two people following a standoff in Minden.

NSP Investigators learned Wednesday morning that two suspects wanted in connection with a home invasion robbery were inside a residence at 218 East 7th Street in Minden. The home invasion robbery took place in Harlan County at an earlier date and involved a weapon.

NSP SWAT was called to the scene at approximately 1:00 p.m. to assist in the operation. Several announcements were made from outside the house in an attempt to get the suspects to surrender voluntarily. The suspects did not respond to the announcements, nor did they respond to phone calls.

SWAT utilized a police service dog and a robot before troopers entered the home. A short time later, a NSP K9 detected that someone was behind a closed bedroom door.
