A man wanted for armed robbery peacefully surrendered today when a SWAT team deployed to a home in Metairie.

David Melancon was wanted in New Orleans and also had attachments in Jefferson Parish. The SWAT team accompanied a U.S. Marshals task force to the house in the 4600 block of Meadowdale Street near Clearview this morning as a precaution.

Sheriff Joe Lopinto said Melancon had previously made comments about not wanting to go back to jail.
