Pinellas deputies arrest man after standoff at home

Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies arrested a man on several charges Wednesday after he barricaded himself inside a home for two hours, deputies said.

Juan Civo Yacup, 28, was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm, possession of marijuana and cocaine, dealing in stolen property and resisting arrest without violence.

On Wednesday afternoon detectives were trying to track down a gun stolen during a burglary earlier this month. During their investigation they learned the original suspect gave the gun to another man.

Detectives arrived at 8697 Quail Road in Seminole about 2:30 p.m. While speaking with a woman at the house, Yacup ran out the back, deputies said.

As Yacup ran he dropped a bag of marijuana and a gun, deputies said, and then headed for a nearby home, where Yacup knew the homeowner.

Deputies yelled to Yacup and told him to walk outside, but he barricaded himself in the house for two hours. He surrendered just before 5 p.m., deputies said.
