ROCKLAND, Maine (WABI) - Multiple people are facing charges following a police standoff last night in Rockland.

Local and state police were called to a house on Knott Street around 5:30 p.m.

Rockland Police say it was part of a Maine Drug Enforcement Agency investigation into drug trafficking.

Police say because the people inside refused to exit the house, the state police tactical team was called in.

Police say 37-year-old Christopher Barnes and three other people eventually came out of the house.

Barnes was arrested on charges that include trafficking drugs and violation of conditions of release.

Brian Lee, 35; Kayla Faller, 25; and Daniel Barns, 35, were all arrested for refusing to submit to arrest, as well as various other charges.
