On 02/07/2009 at approximately 1139 hours, the Frederick Police Department received information that a wanted subject was located in the area of Box Grove Way in Frederick, Md. Based on information received, the nature of the charges he is wanted on, and witness reports that he is armed, we activated the Department’s Special Response Team (SRT) and Crisis Intervention Team (CIT), to contain the area and assist in a obtaining a peaceful resolution.
We are still on scene and working within our established procedures for dealing with a possible barricaded subject. At this time we are attempting to determine if the subject is located within the area that we have reason to believe he is.
We would like the public to know that we have closed Bel Aire Lane at Park Ridge Rd. and asking the public to avoid the area until further notie
Additional information will be released when available.
After numerous unsuccessful attempts to contact Mr. Hughes via his cell phone, a decision was made to make entry into the home located in the 100 Block of Box Grove Way where he was believed to be located. In an attempt to exhaust all safety precautions prior to officers, approaching the house we requested the assistance of the Maryland State Police Aviation Division to search the adjacent yards.
Once the area was safe, officers from the Special Response Team made entry and cleared the residence. Mr. Hughes was located within the residence hiding in the attic of the home.
Hughes was placed under arrest for three open arrest warrants and transported to Frederick County Central Booking.
