GRANITE FALLS — Schools in Granite Falls were placed in lockdown Monday morning as deputies with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office searched for a suspected car thief.
The incident began around 8:45 a.m. when someone called 911 to report an erratic driver in the Snohomish area at 43rd Street NE and Newberg Road. A suspect was arrested before 11 a.m. and the lockdown was lifted.
Deputies pursued the vehicle north until the driver abandoned the car on Hemming Way in Granite Falls near Mountain Way Elementary School.
The vehicle had been reported stolen out of King County and had no license plates, sheriff’s office spokeswoman Shari Ireton said.
The Granite Falls School District confirmed that they locked down several other schools in the area due to their proximity to the search, Ireton said.
