WACO (February 22, 2013)—Waco’s Cedar Ridge Elementary School went into a brief lockdown late Friday morning as police searched for a suspect nearby.

At one point the wanted man evidently was spotted in the playground area of the school at 2115 Meridian Ave., but then ran away, Waco Independent School District spokesman Dale Caffey said.

The lockdown was lifted after about 30 minutes Caffey said.

Information about the suspect and why police were searching for him wasn’t immediately available.
