(Fargo, ND) -- A man has been arrested after a successful knock and announce search warrant in Fargo early Saturday evening.

Shortly after 5 p.m, the Red River Valley SWAT Team assisted the Fargo Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Unit with the high-risk, knock-and-announce search warrant at 2624 35th Ave. South in Fargo.

Fargo Police says the person arrested, identified as Dustin Troy Hagman, had several active warrants out of several counties. That includes Domestic Violence Simple Assault and Criminal Mischief in Ramsey County.

Hagman was also wanted in Burke County for Unlawful Possession of Firearm by a Violent Felon, Reckless Endangerment - Extreme Indifference Domestic Violence, Domestic Violence Assault - Substantial Bodily Injury and Menacing - Domestic Violence and Order of Revocation of Bail.

"During the service of the search warrant, the SWAT Team utilized a Flash Sound Diversionary Device (FSDD) to create a loud bang and bright flash of light," said the Fargo Police Department in a statement made to WDAY Radio with regards to the operation. "The use of an FSDD is intended to create a distraction for the suspects to allow the officers to perform tasks that may put them in danger, unbeknownst to the suspects."

There were no injuries from the operation, and Hagman is now being held in the Cass County jail.
