A wanted man was peacefully taken into custody

ARCATA. Calif.(KIEM)- After about two hours of negotiations, an Arcata man surrenders peacefully to Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies.

34-year-old Mathew Dilley was wanted on multiple felony charges, including a high-speed pursuit last night. At about ten this morning, HCSO received a call that Dilley walked along Sutter Road in McKinleyville. 

When deputies contacted Dilley, he whipped out a firearm and threatened to harm himself. A negotiation team was brought in and convinced Dilley to surrender peacefully. He’s now in the Humboldt County Jail.
