San Angelo Police find wanted felon after responding to scene of activated CPS panic button

SAPD officers responded to a report of an activated CPS panic button on North Van Buren Street Thursday afternoon.

SAN ANGELO, Texas — Just after 2:30 p.m. Thursday, San Angelo Police Department officers responded to a report of an activated Child Protective Services panic button in the 700 block of North Van Buren Street.

According to SAPD Public Information Officer Tracy Piatt-Fox, when officers arrived on scene, they learned a wanted felon was inside the residence, along with two minor children and an adult female.

"It should be known that the warrants were for continuance of family violence and grand jury indictments," Piatt-Fox said. "So, a very violent situation. We also learned that there was a handgun inside the residence."

Officers were able to establish communication with the suspect, and through that communication, the woman and children were able to come out of the home without incident.

At one point, the officers had to breach the door of the residence to make contact with the suspect.

"He was located barricaded inside the home," Piatt-Fox said. "He was taken into custody without further incident."

The suspect was identified as Adam Pounds, 31. 

No further information was available at the scene.
