Suspect in Adelanto Standoff Identified

ADELANTO-( At about 3:30 p.m. on Monday afternoon deputies from the Victor Valley Station arrived to the 11600 block of Danielle Drive near Jonathan Street to secure the area for the Chino Police Department to serve an arrest warrant.

When authorities arrived on the scene the suspect, identified as Johnny Munson would not come out of the residence despite numerous PA announcements.

Nearby residents report that they were evacuated from their homes, some even asked to take their dogs with them so they would not interfere with K-9 officers on scene.

Sheriff’s SWAT Team responded to the scene and assisted Chino PD in taking the suspect into custody at about 6:20 p.m. without further incident.

Munson has a criminal history which includes convictions for spousal abuse, resisting arrest, vandalism and is currently facing criminal trespassing charges. The most recent charges were filed by the San Bernardino County District Attorney for spousal abuse and criminal trespassing filed on October 27, 2015.

There is no further information at this time, a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Spokesperson was not immediately available for comment at this time.
