A San Benito elementary school was placed on lockdown Thursday afternoon due to a nearby burglary.
At approximately 12:42 p.m., officers with the San Benito Police Department responded to the 1100 block of North Dick Dowling Street in reference to a burglary.
“What sparked our fear is that one of the items that was taken was a shotgun,” said SBPD Assistant Chief of Operations Michael Galvan. “Since they ran in that general direction, we basically had no other choice but to notify the school, and the school was placed on lockdown because of that.”
