WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A police standoff at the Antigua Apartment complex in the city of Wilmington ended peacefully Thursday morning as a man was arrested on a probation violation.

The F.B.I. Safe Streets Gang Task Force and the U.S. Marshals Violent Fugitives Task Force joined the Special Enforcement Response Team from the Wilmington Police Department in arresting Victor Eugene Dorm, 21 years old, shortly before noon.

Dorm is being held on a $75,000 bond.

Neighbors in that area say the SWAT team and canines swarmed the area after 10 a.m. Thursday.

Police say the suspect had a significant history, prompting the advanced preparation.  Despite that, the arrest ended without incident.
