SPARKS, NV - A woman was arrested Wednesday after a standoff on Sullivan Lane.

Karen Lynn Gale surrendered peacefully and was arrested by the US Marshals' Office on a federal drug warrant, according to our on-scene reporter.

Sullivan Lane between Wedekind and Byrd is back open after the standoff led it to be temporarily closed.

Sheriff's spokesman Bob Harmon told KOLO 8 News Now deputies went to a home in the area to serve a warrant, but the subject of the warrant wouldn't cooperate.

For a point, Gale was held up in a trailer on the property, according to our on-scene reporter.

Police say Gale was believed to be armed and dangerous.
