Police on scene, man barricaded inside home

A man in Verner has barricaded himself inside his home and two police agencies are on scene.

Police officials say officers were called in Monday to assist a process-server trying to serve papers to a residence in Verner on Highway 64, south of Highway 17.

Problems arose and local police had to back off and they called the OPP for assistance.

The OPP says the immediate area around the home has been contained.

West Nipissing Police Chief Chuck Seguin told CTV there’s no danger to the public and negotiations continue with the person in the house.
