Winchester, Va. - After a two hour standoff, a wanted Virginia man has been taken into custody by Winchester police.
Kyle Hamill was staying at the America’s Best Value Inn off Valley Road, when police received a tip from Crime Stoppers of his whereabouts.
Hamill was wanted on a probation violation.
"At approximately 9:30 a.m. our officers responded to the area of the (America’s) Best Value Inn on Valley Avenue, after receiving a tip through an anonymous source on Crime Stoppers," said Sergeant Frank Myrtle with the Winchester Police Department.
When police arrived Monday morning, Hamill refused to come out of his room.
They determined that Hamill might have had weapons and called in members of their SWAT team to assist.
"After being unsuccessful in making contact with Mr. Hamill, members of our SWAT team were utilized to respond to the location," said Myrtle.
After two hours of discussion through closed doors, Hamill finally voluntarily surrendered to police.
"We had communication with him from the time we arrived, law enforcement talked to him and after speaking to him, he decided to come out," Myrtle said.
Hamill is currently being held without bail at the Northwestern Regional Adult Detention Center.
This is the same motel where, less than a month ago, Jessika Smith allegedly pushed her two-year old daughter causing her to be unresponsive. When police arrived on the scene the next morning, the two-year old was pronounced dead.
