PRESS RELEASE On Wednesday, February 14, 2018, The Stroud Area Regional Police Department executed a search warrant at 5555 Glenbrook Road, in Stroud Township as the result of a barricaded male. The investigation initially began at the above address on December 26, 2017 where PA State Constables went to enforce a notice of possession (eviction) on the tenant, 63 year old Michael Rogers. When the Constables arrival at the residence, they became alarmed due to observing the windows of the residence being covered with what appeared to be brown foam floor titles, obstructing any view into the residence. The windows were not covered on their first visit when the eviction notice was posted. Upon approaching the front door, Constables then discovered a noticed posted to the front door of the residence by Rogers. The notice threatened that anyone who entered the residence by force was in danger of lethal consequences. A packet of alarming documents was also left for the constables. Included in the documents, Rogers made various threatening statements about not leaving the home and harm to anyone that may enter. Due to the posted notice, packet and the obstructed windows, Constables believed that their lives were in danger as Rogers had made serious threats, so they retreated from the residence and were unable to enforce the court order. At this time, the Stroud Area Regional Police was contacted to investigate the incident. Over the next several weeks, Rogers was contacted via phone and advised of the situation and numerous services were offered to assist him, Rogers refused any and all assistance and refused to leave the residence. As a result of the investigation an arrest warrant was issued for Rogers on charges of Terroristic Threats and Obstructing Administration of Law. Ongoing surveillance was conducted on the residence in hopes of a peaceful resolution. On February 14, 2018 at about 0800 hours, Rogers was observed outside of his residence. SARPD officers attempted to take him into custody but Rogers ignored officer’s verbal commands was able to retreat back inside his residence. A perimeter was set up and numerous attempts to contact Rogers went unanswered. A search warrant was then obtained and the Pennsylvania State Police SWAT team was contacted to assist and arrived on scene at approximately 11a.m. During the next 15 ½ hours, police made numerous attempts to get Rogers to exit his home. After repeated failed attempts, police entered the home at approximately 2:30am, where Rogers was found deceased due to an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound. Glenbrook Road from Norton Road to Vineyard Road will remain closed for the next few hours. Police will remain at the residence until the investigation is concluded.
