EVERETT, Wash. —

Everett, Wash., police have captured a home intruder who held them at bay for nearly eight hours after claiming to have a grenade.

Police spokesman Aaron Snell says officers entered the house shortly before 10 p.m. Friday and arrested a 40-year-old Lake Stevens man. No grenade was found.

Snell said earlier in a statement that police responding Friday afternoon to a neighbor's call about a break-in confronted a man who was leaving the house but turned and went back inside. Officers searched the home and were able to talk to the man, who by then was hiding in the attic. Snell says the man claimed to have a grenade and threatened to use it.

No one else was home.

SWAT officers and a bomb unit responded as police worked to negotiate with the man.

Snell said the man would be booked for investigation of burglary.
