A spokesperson for the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) reported that Taylor Taranto, 37, was arrested and charged as a fugitive from justice pursuant to an arrest warrant, which was not specified.
Multiple outlets reported the warrant relates to the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.
CBS News, which first reported the incident, said Taranto ran toward the home, was spotted by Secret Service and attempted to flee before he was arrested.
Taranto has been living in a van in Washington while he faces a lawsuit brought against him and another co-defendant by the widow of an MPD officer who died by suicide less than two weeks after Jan. 6.
MPD had its explosives disposal team sweep the suspect’s van Thursday, and the incident is under investigation, but there is no active threat to the community, the spokesperson said.
