Wanted man threatened to shoot deputies in 3-hour standoff in Alamance County

ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — A man is being charged with multiple felonies following a nearly three-hour standoff with the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office.

At 12:08 p.m. on Sunday, deputies came to a home on the 4200 block of Jug House Road in Gibsonville to serve warrants on Allen Lloyd Lewis, of Gibsonvile.

Lewis was wanted for two counts of communicating threats and an order for arrest for absconding from felony probation.

Deputies say they made numerous attempts to contact Lewis, who was inside the home. Lewis eventually exited the back door and allegedly said that he would shoot the deputies if they did not leave the property before going back inside.

The deputies later talked to Lewis on the phone in an effort to get him to leave. However, Lewis allegedly continued threatening to shoot at law enforcement and refused to exit.

Investigators say that Lewis is a convicted felon.

Due to him being a barricaded subject, the ACSO’s Criminal Investigation Division, Special Response Team and a crisis negotiator were called to the scene. Other law enforcement agencies were called to assist as well.

Investigators say that more attempts were made to get Lewis to exit the home. However, he continued refusing to leave.

Once the Special Response Team arrived, law enforcement entered the home and took Lewis into custody at 2:48 p.m.

A search warrant for the home was executed and investigators found five firearms and various types of ammunition.

Lewis is being charged with the following:

  • Three counts of misdemeanor communicating threats
  • Three counts of misdemeanor communicating threats against officers
  • Felony possession of a firearm by a convicted felon
  • Misdemeanor resist, delay, obstruct a public officer
  • Felony order for arrest on failure to appear
  • Felony probation violation

Lewis was given a $450,000 secured bond.
