Bounty Hunter Sighting Triggers Lockdown At Mahtomedi High School

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Mahtomedi High School went into lockdown Thursday afternoon after students reported seeing an armed man who turned out to be a licensed bounty hunter.

The Washington County Sheriff’s office says two students alerted the school resource officer just before 12:30 p.m.

They said they saw a man wearing a bullet-proof vest with a firearm inside of a blue truck near school property.

Deputies later tracked down the man at his residence, where he showed his credentials as a bounty hunter.

The sheriff’s office says there is no threat to the public and no criminal charges will be sought.
