CLARION, Iowa – A Waterloo man is now scheduled to stand trial for a standoff in Belmond.

Andrew George Schroeder, 36, is charged with 3rd degree burglary, control of a firearm as a felon, operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent, and 4th degree criminal mischief. He was arrested on April 7 after the North Iowa Special Operations Group entered a rural Belmond home and Schroeder surrendered.

The Wright County Sheriff’s Office says it had been called by the property owner and told Schroeder was inside the home and may have had access to weapons. The Belmond Police Department, Iowa State Patrol, Hancock County Sheriff’s Office and Iowa DOT Motor Vehicle Enforcement all assisted at the scene.

Schroeder’s trial is set to begin on July 26.
