North Toledo standoff ends after 90 minutes

A North Toledo man, who police said was depressed and had handguns available to him, yesterday barricaded himself inside his house for about 90 minutes.

James LaPlant was inside 1037 Baker St. about 5:30 p.m. when his girlfriend, Nancy O Neal, called 911 because she said he was contemplating suicide, police said.

Officers arrived, spoke to him via telephone, and eventually coaxed him out of the house. He was taken to Rescue Mental Health Services.

Police found a 22-caliber rifle and a number of other guns locked up inside the home.
