Barricaded Person (Arlington)

*Delayed for officer safety* – Arlington PD and SWAT have apprehended a suspect involved in a barricaded person incident in the 600 block of Red Coat Lane in south Arlington. Earlier this morning, the APD Fugitive Unit attempted to apprehend a wanted fugitive, but the suspect fled into the residence and barricaded himself. SWAT negotiators communicated with the suspect via text message and issued commands via LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device) technology. APD’s armored personnel carrier, the BEAR, was also on scene to assist in apprehension efforts. Gas was deployed inside the residence just before 3pm and officers made entry into the residence soon thereafter and took the suspect into custody. Great job, guys.
