Authorities in Barton County have arrested a 57-year-old Hoisington man after a short standoff.

The incident happened at a home in the 200 block of South Clay Friday evening.

The Barton County Sheriff's office says deputies were conducting a search warrant on the property when they knocked on the front door of the home. Nelson Adams, Sr. allegedly said he had a gun and would not come out.

Once deputies entered, they found one ounce of methamphetamine along with packaging materials at the location.

Adams was booked into jail on drug and gun charges. He has since bonded out of jail.
