Prince George’s County police arrested a breaking and entering suspect who barricaded himself in the 7700 block of Surratts Road in Clinton, Maryland on Tuesday morning.

Wayne Gardiner, 33, of Clinton, Maryland was seen breaking into the home by neighbors.

Officers responded Tuesday morning and observed a male suspect fleeing from a home which was on fire, according to police. It appears the man also set the fire inside the home, police say.

The suspect, armed with a shotgun he stole from the home, went to a wooded area nearby. Police apprehended their suspect in the wooded area.

The shelter in place was lifted from Surratts Road once the suspect was apprehended.

Police held a press conference Tuesday afternoon and provided an update.
