[ARCHIVED] Armed wanted Subject from PA arrested without incident

On April 6, 2015, at approximately 2135 hours, Officers responded to a request for assistance in locating a wanted subject from York County PA. Police in York County advised the subject had an open warrant for a theft of a handgun. York County provided a cell phone number and Officers checked the last known location for the subject. They were not able to locate the subject in the area of the last known location. Officers continued to check the area for the subject and the subject’s vehicle.

A short time later, Officers located the subject’s vehicle at a local hotel. After consultation with management it was determined the subject was occupying a room at the hotel. After many attempts to contact the subject were unsuccessful the Frederick Police Special Response Team was activated to assist due to the possibility of the subject being armed and dangerous.

Officers from the Special Response Team were able to get the subject to come to the door. The subject was taken into custody without incident. The stolen handgun was located within the room.

This investigation is ongoing and local criminal charges are pending.
