Search for armed Citrus man ends with arrest

- Residents in a Homosassa neighborhood were asked to stay indoors as deputies search for an armed subject earlier today, but the all-clear has since been given.

Citrus County deputies and the SWAT team were searching for the man in the area of Park Drive and West Cardinal Street, as well as surrounding wooded areas and abandoned homes.

Deputies warned residents within the perimeter through the Alert Citrus notification system to stay inside and lock their doors.

Just before 1 p.m., though, deputies said the man had been found and arrested.

No other details were immediately available.
