Ulster man sentenced after standoff with police


An Ulster man has been sentenced to state prison in connection with a police standoff in Rome Township back in January.

According to the Bradford County District Attorney’s Office, 26-year-old Sebastian Lee Shults was sentenced to 18 months to five years in a Pennsylvania State Prison.

Shults was previously convicted on charges of possessing a firearm with an altered serial number, a felony in the second degree, and terroristic threats, a misdemeanor.

The charges resulted from a standoff where police said Shults made several threats toward people on Battlecreek Road in Rome Township. Shults was able to escape from the residence and was on the run for weeks before being apprehended on Feb. 14.
