Valinda school locked down due to search for burglary suspect

VALINDA — Authorities placed an elementary school on lockdown Thursday as they hunted for a burglary suspect.
The sheriff’s Industry Station received a call reporting a burglary in progress about 1:40 p.m. in the 15600 block of Doublegrove Street, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Victor Sotelo said.
Responding deputies spotted an intruder, described only as a Latino man, exiting the garage of a home, the lieutenant said. He ran from the deputies, initiating a search of the neighborhood.
As a precaution, officials placed nearby Baldwin Academy on lockdown as they conducted their search, Sotelo said.
Ultimately, the fleeing man was not found, he said. It was unclear if anything had been stolen from the home where the man was seen running from.
