Victoria police say a woman is in custody after a break-and-enter call set off the evacuation of an apartment building and a four-hour standoff.

Police say they were called to a business when an alarm was set off early this morning and officers spotted a woman leaving the scene over a rooftop.

They say the woman then broke into a nearby apartment building, pulled the fire alarm, discharged an extinguisher and then barricaded herself inside a suite.

When negotiations failed, police say officers used a loud distraction device to make the arrest and she now faces the possibility of multiple charges.
