Probation search leads to three-hour stand-off in Thousand Oaks

A SWAT team surrounded a house in Thousand Oaks Wednesday morning while crisis negotiators tried to coax several people to peacefully exit the residence.

At about 8:40 am deputies went to the home in the 100-block of Teasdale Street to conduct a probation search and look for Cameron Burn, who was wanted for assault with a deadly weapon and had recently been seen with a .45-caliber handgun. Deputies first contacted Karl Duncan, who was belligerent and fought with them. As they struggled to arrest Duncan, Robert Burn and his father, Edward, advanced toward deputies with weapons. Robert had a baseball bat, while Edward had a landscape trimmer.

Deputies struggled with Duncan, but were able to arrest him. However, Robert and Edward continued to be uncooperative. After threatening the deputies with the weapons, Robert and Edward retreated inside the residence, creating a barricade situation. Additional deputies with specialized training were summoned to the scene. This included deputies from the SWAT team, Tactical Negotiations Unit, and the Unmanned Aerial Systems Unit.

After several hours of negotiations, Robert and Edward exited the residence. Both were arrested for threatening deputies. Piper Sperry also exited the residence and was arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance. Cameron Burn, also exited the home and was quickly arrested for the previous assault with a deadly weapon.

During the standoff, investigators obtained a search warrant for the house. Deputies searched the residence and located Jesse Johnson and Candice Wilkerson, who were hiding inside a   shed in the backyard. Johnson was arrested for several outstanding narcotics warrants, and Wilkerson was arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance. Deputies also found Kaitlin Brodie hiding in the attic of the home. Brodie was arrested for outstanding warrants and delaying an investigation.

All the arrestees were transported and booked into jail.
