Police: Hostage situation ended safely

REDFORD — A Redford man faces felony and misdemeanor charges after he allegedly threatened his wife and in-laws with a shotgun.

New York State Police say Marvin R. Dygert Sr., 26, brandished the firearm and threatened to shoot his wife, mother-in-law, sister-in-law and any police who arrived during a domestic dispute very early Saturday, shortly after midnight.

The Dygerts’ two children, ages 5 and 6, were also in the home.

State Police crisis negotiators and the Special Operations Response Team, as well as members of the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department, responded to the home.

After several hours, Dygert was taken into custody by members of the Special Operations Response Team.

He was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a felony, and second-degree criminal contempt, second-degree menacing and endangering the welfare of a child, all misdemeanors.

He was arraigned in Saranac Town Court and sent to Clinton County Jail on $5,000 cash bail/$10,000 bond.
