I saw all the lights and asked what was going on before approaching my home.

They said somebody with a warrant got away from them and they were doing a house to house search.

The seargent I spoke went to some length to explain that this was *not* an "armed and dangerous" situation.

off middlefield - that's strange, my neighbor who spoke to the police was told the person was considered armed and dangerous.

As Joe said they did catch the person, they caught them right just a couple houses away from me. There were paramedics present, not sure what for.

Three agencies, include PAPD, had K-9's helping with the search. Heard that the PAPD K-9 grabbed him. Sounded like the suspect went to Stanford, but nothing serious.
