Man in standoff faces charges today

FARGO – A man here will face charges of burglary and terrorizing in Cass County Court today after he was arrested Tuesday following an hour-long standoff with police.

Police were looking for 30-year-old Travis Zierke on an outstanding warrant when they planned to search his trailer home. Police had received complaints that Zierke broke into an acquaintance’s garage. The victim said he caught Zierke in the act and that Zierke pulled a gun on him.

Police had cordoned off the block of 21st Street South in Fargo Tuesday night. Zierke came out of the home in only his underwear after a smoke device was detonated.
