The Madera County Regional SWAT Team converged in Coarsegold with a search warrant for the home of Daniel Holt, 48, Tuesday morning.
Holt was not there when officers arrived at 8 a.m. but was contacted by officers by phone and returned to his gated home. There he was taken into custody without incident and booked into Madera County Jail on suspicion he recently burglarized a Coarsegold home.
The SWAT team is made up of officers from the Madera County Sheriff’s Office and the Madera and Chowchilla Police Departments.
Sheriff’s Cmdr. Tyson Pogue explained that the SWAT team is often used when serving warrants, after looking at a number of cumulative factors including the fortification of a house and the suspect’s criminal history.
