Samson Messier arrested in Surprise barricade incident, linked to El Mirage armed robbery

SURPRISE, AZ - Police say 21-year-old Samson Messier is in custody after he barricaded himself in his home in Surprise Wednesday evening.

Messier was wanted for breaking into an El Mirage home earlier this month and stealing money at gunpoint, according to police.

The U.S. Marshals Service Task Force had been looking for him ever since.

SWAT teams spent four hours trying to get Messier out of his home near Cottonwood and Nash Streets on Wednesday night.

Officials said Messier now faces a long list of charges.

No other details were released.
