Suspect Wanted by West Virginia State Police

 

BALTIMORE, Md. (February 12, 2024) – Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police Officers arrested a Hagerstown man wanted on attempted murder charges at Baltimore/Washington International (BWI) Thurgood Marshall Airport yesterday morning.

On February 11, at 10 a.m., MDTA Police Officers assigned to the BWI Airport Detachment received information that an attempted murder suspect may be traveling to the airport. Officers began to investigate and identified a suspect vehicle.

Shortly after 11:30 a.m., officers located the suspect vehicle on the airport’s lower level roadway and identified the driver as 34-year-old Zachary A. Butler. Officers confirmed that Butler was wanted on an open warrant through the West Virginia State Police for charges including attempted murder, burglary and domestic assault. Officers took Butler into custody and transported him to the Jennifer Road Detention Center without incident.

Those charged with a crime are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
