Lambton OPP says it is investigating a barricaded person incident that occurred in the 900 block of White Line around 6:30 p.m. Thursday (Jan. 12) at 6:30 p.m.

When police were called to check on the well being of a 44-year-old St. Clair Township man, he initially refused to come out or speak to police but has since surrendered.
