WASECA, Minn. (KEYC) - A man is in custody following a standoff with law enforcement in Waseca on Monday evening. At approximately 6:25 p.m., the Waseca Police Department was called to the 500 block of 7th Avenue SE for a report of a male individual with a gun at the residence.

The Waseca Police Department responded to 514 7th Avenue SE to investigate a report of a male in the house with a gun.

The man, who was later identified as 39-year-old David Huff, had reportedly been using methamphetamine for a few days and had been hallucinating.

Sometime later, it was determined that the South Central Drug Investigative Unit SWAT and the Minnesota River Valley SWAT teams would be called in to assist authorities in removing Huff from the residence.

After negotiating with Huff, he did eventually leave the residence at 11:22 p.m.

A search warrant was later executed and officers found additional firearms, ammunition, firearm-related items, methamphetamine and other controlled substances.

David Huff is currently in custody and is being held at the Waseca County Jail where he is awaiting criminal charges. He is scheduled to make his first court appearance at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 26, in Waseca District Court.
