A burglary suspect surrendered in East Austin just before SWAT teams got set up near Eastside Memorial High School early Thursday morning.

Austin police got a call at about 4:30 a.m. about a burglary of a trailer at 1110 Brookswood Ave.

They tracked a suspect to a home at 1029 Gardner Road by the high school, but that suspect refused to come out. That’s when Austin police called in the SWAT team in around 5:20 a.m.

Meanwhile, a watch commander did not know whether any neighboring homes were evacuated.
