Just this week, police believe Henson set the family’s home on fire. Luckily, detectives moved them into witness protection days before the blaze.

“The police department hasn’t rested, this community hasn’t rested. We’re only standing here today in front of you because our community stepped up to the plate like we asked them to do and gave us numerous tips that led us to south Baltimore tonight, where we found Charles Henson in a rowhome right behind me. Charles Henson was actually distracted by Foxtrot, our helicopter, when the light shined in his window. He noticed it, he came outside, had a few words and then he gave up. Charles Henson, our Public Enemy No. 1, was taken into custody without incident tonight,” said Deputy Commissioner Kevin Davis, Baltimore City Police Department.

Henson has a violent history. He was just arrested last summer as part of a major drug ring.

Those who knew Henson told police he wasn’t afraid to engage in a shootout with officers and die that way.
