Bail set for suspect in Tuesday’s standoff

FARGO – Bail was set at $20,000 Thursday for a Fargo man arrested in a standoff with a SWAT team at his south Fargo trailer home on Tuesday.

Travis Eugene Zierke, 30, is facing a Class B felony charge of burglary. He’s accused of burglarizing the garage of a friend at 1738 11th St. S. and pulling a gun on the friend when he confronted him.

Court documents filed Wednesday allege that when police contacted Zierke by phone about the alleged break-in, he told them that the acquaintance had pulled a gun on him first.

His arraignment is set for June 20.
