Olton Police Department and Olton ISD confirmed yesterday that all 3 campuses of Olton ISD was placed on lock down Monday morning inadvertently by a Federal Agent.
Reports indicate that a junior high student saw a man get out of a minivan behind the gym at the school and equip a bulletproof vest and several guns. Parents were notified through the emergency notification system and the campuses were locked down. School administration notified the Olton Police Department who through investigation located the vehicle and realized that the federal agent had parked behind the gym to put on his bulletproof vest and was getting ready to serve a search warrant at a home in Olton.
The school lifted the lock down before noon after it was verified to be the federal agent.
