Update: Police Apprehend Wanted Man Who Refused to Leave Home

Police identify the man as 60-year-old William D. Green

Update Friday 4:58 p.m.:  Police apprehended a wanted man that refused to leave a home on Camden street Friday at around 1 a.m. Police have identified the man as William D. Green, 60, who was arrested in Arlington for failure to appear in the court for felony offense.  He has been taken to a Fairfax County jail, but he will later be transferred to an Arlington jail. Police say no weapons were involved in apprehending the individual.

Update - 8:20 p.m.: The following email was sent to parents this evening from Fort Hunt Elementary School:

Today,Wednesday, June 9,  at 2:40 p.m. the Fairfax County Police issued a Secure in Building notice for Fort  Hunt Elementary due to a police situation  on Camden Street.  Secure in Building requires that all outside doors are secured and all outside activities are cancelled.  Students and staff are free to move about the building. At no time were the students in any danger.

Police gave  clearance to dismiss bus riders, kiss and ride students and walkers who lived to the west of the building.  Students who live on Camden or who walk home via east Linton Lane  were kept at school. We notified parents via telephone of the situation.

To insure that no students were walking home or playing in the area of the situation, teachers were sent to key areas to monitor the dismissal.  Our extra precautions resulted in a later than usual dismissal.  Thank you for patience and understanding.

Correction: The original version of this update mistated the school that sent the email.

Update - 4:47 p.m.:  Police say the individual is wanted for failure to appear.  The initial warrant was initiated in Arlington, for felony eluding police.  Though he didn’t know the details of the crime, Officer Bud Walker said someone might receive this charge if a police officer motioned a driver to pull over, but he drove off instead.

 Walker said officers were at local schools facilitating the dismissal of students. Police first made contact with the individual at around 1:30 p.m.

At around 3 p.m. Thursday, an email sent to parents said that students riding the bus SG 51 would remain at school until clearance is given for the bus to take the children to the Fort Hunt area.  Though parents could pick up their children at the school at any time.



Original story: Police say an individual with a warrant out for his arrest will not come out of  home on Camden Street between Linton and Stratford Lane.  Police say there are no weapons involved.  Police did not say which roads are closed.

this story is missing something. they had swat out there and they don't do that for failure to appear.

He may have had a weapon after all? My husband stated that it was a command unit, not swat

Around 8 pm, I drove by the Stratford Lane road block. All that remains is the yellow crime scene tape and an unmarked police car positioned behind the tape, parallel to Stratford Lane.
