William D. Boggs, 43, of N. Mill St. in Waynesburg was arrested by federal agents Tuesday morning after a swat situation.

Anne Murphy, spokeswoman for the US Marshals, tells JMN that Boggs was at the center of a burglary investigation by the Waynesburg police department. An arrest warrant was issued for the suspect and conducted by federal agents with assistance from the Stark County Sheriff’s Office, Canton Police Swat and other agencies.

When law enforcement arrived on scene at a house in the 800 block of Elmford near Broadford in Waynesburg, Boggs barricaded himself in a garage on the property, according to Murphy.

After a few hours of the swat standoff, Boggs was arrested without incident. Murphy says firearms were recovered from the garage he was barricaded in.

The suspect faces charges of Aggravated Burglary (F1), Robbery (F2), Intimidation of Crime Victim/Witness (F3), Domestic Violence (F3), Menacing by Stalking (F4), Aggravated Menacing (M1) and Obstructing Official Business (F5).

JMN is working to learn what led to the investigation.

Murphy says members of the Canton police fired non-lethal rounds during the situation. No rounds were fired from firearms. No injuries were reported.
