Man surrenders to YCSO, FBI after barricading himself in home

A man wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on a warrant for failure to appear for court proceedings was arrested Thursday evening after he surrendered to Yavapai County Sheriff's Office deputies, ending a day-long barricade situation at a Seligman home, said YCSO spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn.

On Thursday morning, FBI agents from Flagstaff tried to serve an arrest warrant for Shawn Rice, 49, in the 54000 block of N. Sunrise Lane, but Rice barricaded himself inside the home with his wife and two children, D'Evelyn said.

YCSO's SWAT was immediately deployed to provide security along with DPS officers until the FBI tactical team arrived, D'Evelyn said.

Throughout the day, FBI agents and a YCSO deputy familiar with Rice from previous contacts negotiated with Rice until he surrendered to YCSO deputies, D'Evelyn said. No one was injured during the situation.

Deputies arrested Rice around 5:30 p.m. without incident, booked him into the Coconino County jail, and Rice had an initial appearance before a U.S. Magistrate in Flagstaff on Friday morning, said FBI press information agent Jennifer Giannola.

Rice was indicted in March 2009 on one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering and 30 counts of money laundering, said Special Agent Patrick S. Turner, media coordinator for the FBI office in Las Vegas.

"After his arrest and initial appearance on these charges, Rice was released pending further court proceedings," Turner said. "Rice subsequently failed to appear at four separate court proceedings."

Yavapai County Sheriff Scott Mascher, who was at the scene, said he appreciated how deputies provided critical support to the FBI while maintaining security for surrounding residents, D'Evelyn said.

Arizona sheriffs do not court publicity.

It wasn't a photo op.....but there will always be one (or more) in the bunch that has a negative attitude. Instead of believing that people come from a good place and was truly trying to do the right thing, you "assume" it was about something else. You know what they say about assuming right?

To "Good Job".... nice try... rolling out to a scene for a high profile photo op does not make you a hands on guy... Buck used to do the same thing once a year or so...look up "desk jockey" in the dictionary and you'll find a picture of Henderscott aka the "triple dipper"...

It's nice to see that the sheriff is a hands-on type of person, rather than just an office jockey.
