KKK clothes found in standoff suspect’s home

Officers from the Conway Police Department were involved in a five hour long standoff with a suspect stemming from a domestic dispute, spanning from 9:00 pm Sunday until 2:00 am Monday.
CONWAY, AR – Police say that they found KKK attire and memorabilia in the home of a standoff suspect Monday morning. Also found in the felon’s home were three rifles, a shotgun, and a .44 magnum, none of which he is allowed to possess.

Conway police arrested 46-year-old Lee Adams after a five hour standoff stemming from a domestic dispute. Lee was taken into custody shortly after 2am Monday on charges of terroristic threatening and disorderly conduct.

The incident started Sunday when a witness called 911 to report hearing gunshots in the area of 111 Locust Street. When officers went to investigate, Adams’ wife claimed that everything was fine. Adams reportedly told the police that the noises were a result of “fireworks” and officers did see used fireworks in the backyard.

Officers left the scene, only to return an hour later when Adams’ wife, found hiding in the bushes, flagged an officer down for help, saying that her husband had threatened to kill her.

When officers returned to the scene to speak to Adams, he barricaded himself inside of the house, which lead to a standoff involving the SWAT team. A negotiator was finally able to coax Adams out of the home.
