Binghamton, N.Y. (WBNG Binghamton) Police took a robbery suspect in custody this afternoon, following a standoff on Clarke Street in Binghamton.

The Broome County Sheriff's Office, the Binghamton Police Department and the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force stormed a home to capture suspect Kareem Gibson, 29, Binghamton, identified by the sheriff's office.

The law enforcement agencies began tracking Gibson after he reportedly robbed a man while armed with a handgun in the Town of Chenango Thursday night.

According to investigators, narcotics could have played a role in the robbery.

Gibson was also wanted on a parole violation.

"This afternoon, it culminated here on Clarke Street. They did some good work this morning and this afternoon. Developed some information which led them to Gibson over here at the McDonald's on Main Street," said Broome County Sheriff's Office Captain Fred Akshar.

The agencies chased Gibson on foot from the McDonald's on Main Street to 49 Clarke St., where he ran into the home.

Akshar stated that Gibson knows a person living there.

Gibson surrendered about 40 minutes into the standoff. Deputies and police searched the home as part of their ongoing investigation.

Gibson was arrested for robbery in the second degree. He's currently at the Broome County Sheriff's Correctional Facility on a parole violation warrant.

He will be arraigned in the next few days in the Town of Chenango Court.
