WILLINGBORO — A standoff between township police and a Garfield East resident that lasted more than six hours ended early yesterday without injury after a special unit stormed the man's home.
Police received a report about 9:15 p.m. Wednesday that the man, Willie Grace, 57, of Executive Lane, had a loaded revolver and intended to ``harm himself.'' An unidentified female friend of Grace's reported the matter.
After several unsuccessful attempts to contact Grace by phone, members of the Burlington County Special Response team were called to the scene. They stormed the house at 3:30 a.m. yesterday.
