Lockdown Lifted at Arlington Elementary School

An Arlington elementary school delayed the release of its students Tuesday afternoon while police searched for a burglar nearby.

Students were kept inside Blanton Elementary School until about 4:45 p.m., according to Arlington police.

Investigators say officers were dispatched to a burglary in progress call in the 500 block of Biggs Terrace at about 2:20 p.m. When police arrived at the home, they arrested one person as a second ran away.

The school, which is located along South Collins Street at East Lovers Lane, was placed on lockdown as a precaution.

The second person was arrested a short time later and the students were released to go home.
