Students at Sky View Middle and Lava Ridge Schools in northeast Bend were under a lock down for about 45 minutes this afternoon. School Resource Officer Kecia Weaver explains what happened. "There was a vehicle located in the parking lot of Sky View Middle School that had been reported as having been taken from a burglary in a nearby area this afternoon. And so as a precaution, Deschutes County Sheriffs Office and Bend PD, while investigating that crime, decided to lockdown both schools while we looked for the suspect in the area of the school." Around 12:20 p.m., with guns drawn, officers swarmed the area looking for the burglary suspect; causing some excitement with the students. Weaver says the kids do go through drills and knew exactly what to do. The suspect is still at large. He's described as 6’1”, 160 pounds and heavily tattooed.  If you have any information, contact the Deschutes County Sheriff. (541-693-6911).
