U.S. Marshals this week arrested a Capitol Heights, Md., man who is accused of calling in a bomb threat to the Fairfax County jail in October.

The feds captured William Wyatt Raum at about 6 a.m. Monday at a Capitol Heights apartment, U.S. Marshal Robert Mathieson announced in a news release.

Authorities say Raum called in a bomb threat to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center, at 10520 Judicial Drive in Fairfax, on Oct. 29.

A local sheriff's deputy assigned to the U.S. Marshal's fugitive task force investigated the threat and found Raum to be a suspect, the news release states.

Raum was taken to the Prince George’s County Police Department and is awaiting extradition to Fairfax County.

Raum had another run-in with the law just this summer.

In July, Prince George's police say Raum barricaded himself in his apartment after firing a weapon into the ground outside.

That incident was resolved without any injuries, according to police.
