HAMPTON FALLS — State and local police blocked off an area near 210 Exeter Road for more than four hours during a standoff with a Stratham man.
According to police, the standoff started when Mark Tracy, 37, called 911 to report an overdose. When police arrived, he reportedly threatened them, saying he had a weapon. Local police called for backup from Exeter and the state police.
The standoff shut down Route 88 near the home, but Tracy eventually surrendered peacefully after his lawyer spoke to him several times on the phone.
"Our goal is, in situations like this, for everybody to walk away safely and that's why today was a success. He wasn't injured. The police weren't injured. Innocent bystanders or citizens weren't injured," said state police Lt. Chris Vetter.
The home was not Tracy's but belonged to someone he knew. He was charged with criminal threatening and violating bail conditions from an unrelated case.
Police say he scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
