A wanted Stafford man was arrested after a standoff in Grafton Village earlier today.

At 11:00 a.m. deputies responded to the 700 block of Edwards Drive in an attempt to locate Guy Castonguay, 31. Castonguay had active warrants in Stafford County for probation violations and deputies learned he could be in possession of a firearm.

Deputies surrounded the residence and attempted to call Castonguay out for nearly an hour. The suspect refused to exit the residence and Drone and K-9 Teams responded to assist.

Sergeant S.H. Curtis, Jr. was able to navigate a drone through the home and located the suspect crouched down in the basement. Deputies gave additional commands to surrender and Castonguay gave up peacefully.

Deputy D.R. Ludolph transported Castonguay to the magistrate’s office and he was held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.

Excellent teamwork by the deputies to leverage technology and arrest the offender.
