APD: SWAT Call Suspect Turned In By Own Family

Updated: Friday, July 26 2013, 03:40 PM CDT

Police say the robbery suspect taken in to custody Tuesday evening after a SWAT standoff in Northwest Austin was turned in by his own family.

According to the arrest affidavit, 40-year-old Neil Adam Klein (pictured) is charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, a first degree felony.

Klein was taken into custody after a four-hour SWAT standoff at the Spicewood Springs Apartments located at 8617 Spicewood Springs Road, just west of Hwy 183.

Klein had barricaded himself inside an apartment after police tried to serve the robbery warrant. No one else was inside the apartment or in danger, according to police.

Klein was wanted for a robbery at a Planet K located at 11657 Research Blvd. on June 28.

The affidavit says Klein stole cigarettes from the smoke shop. A Planet K employee ran after him but told police he stopped his pursuit after Klein pointed a gun at him.

Court documents say police released surveillance footage of the robbery to the media and about a month later they received a tip from Klein's parents and the mother of his children that they recognized him as the suspect.

Police were able to look at previous booking photos of Klein which matched the suspect in the surveillance video.

Klein remains in custody at the Travis County Jail under a $30,000 bond.APD: SWAT Call Suspect Turned In By Own Family
