Nearly a dozen of Miami-Dade Special Response Team members were present at the home as a perimeter was set. Michael Carrero, who barricaded himself in the home, surrendered to police without incident.
A man was taken into custody Wednesday after he barricaded himself inside a Miami home, which had been part of an investigation into a hydroponics lab, authorities said.
Michael Carrero, 38, faces charges including cultivating marijuana and resisting without violence, according to Miami-Dade Police.
Authorities were trying to make contact with Carrero for an investigation into a hydroponics lab at the home he owned, which was located at 6644 SW 61 Street.
During the investigation, he fled out the back door, police said. But he returned and barricaded himself inside before surrendering to authorities.
A perimeter was established and nearby South Miami Middle School was placed on lockdown during the incident, Miami-Dade Police said.
Inside the home, police said they found a fully functional hydroponics laboratory.
Carrero was seen wearing a blue and white T-shirt as nearly a dozen Special Response Team members surrounded the home. The Miami-Dade Police Department Narcotics Bureau was also on scene.
