LAKE ELMO, Minn. (WCCO) – A junior high school in Lake Elmo was placed on lockdown Wednesday morning after a snowmobile theft nearby.

According to officials, the lockdown affected students at Oak-Land Junior High. The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said all students were safe. The lockdown was lifted later in the morning.

According to the sheriff’s office, two of three people believed involved in the theft were apprehended, but a third got away.

Officials said the possibility that the third suspect may be armed led to the lockdown.

A sheriff’s deputy has been dispatched to the school as a precaution.
