Police lock down Oak Harbor Middle School
The Oak Harbor Middle School was locked down briefly last Thursday afternoon at the request of detectives.
Lt. Tim Sterkel with the Oak Harbor Police Department said detectives were hoping to arrest a man near the school on outstanding warrants. The detectives were concerned that the man might run through the track-area of the school grounds, so they asked for the lockdown to keep the students inside.
Sterkel said the suspect never showed up, so the lockdown was called off after about a half an hour.
