College Place Elementary and Middle Schools in Lynnwood and Maplewood Parent Cooperative School in Edmonds were locked down briefly late Tuesday morning while Edmonds police searched for a burglary suspect in the 7700 block of 203rd Street Southwest.

According to Edmonds police spokesman Sgt. Shane Hawley, there was a heavy police presence in the area as officers searched for a residential burglary suspect who was known to the victim. The suspect, believed to be unarmed, wasn’t found, Hawley said.

All three schools were locked from 11:25 a.m. to 11:48 a.m. as a precautionary measure, said Edmonds School District spokeswoman Debbie Jakala.
