Reuters is reporting Wednesday night that Ammon Bundy, who along with several other militia members was taken into custody last night at a traffic stop set up by the FBI and Oregon State Police, has through a statement instructed occupiers remaining at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge to “stand down and go home.”

“To those remaining at the refuge, I love you,” Bundy’s lawyer read from a statement today. “Let us take this fight from here. Please stand down. Please stand down. Go home and hug your families. … Please go home.”

The FBI held a press conference this afternoon at which a special agent said the occupiers had been given “ample opportunity to leave.”

One militant, rancher Robert LaVoy Finicum, was killed in a shootout with law enforcement at the traffic stop.
