Suspect captured using some high-tech help

Bladen County Deputies used some high-tech help to end a hostage situation early Wednesday morning when a man barricaded himself in a house with hostages. A sable helicopter from Wilmington came in to help when the suspect slipped from the back of the house. The pilot of the chopper picked him up with the infrared camera and was able to guide officers to the suspect back in the trees. The suspect was armed with a pistol and shotgun, but was captured without incident. He will face multiple felony counts.
