Lockdown lifted at 4 schools in Anderson Co.

ANDERSON CO., S.C. (WSPA) – Four schools in Powdersville were on lockdown for a couple of hours on Monday, according to Anderson School District 1 Superintendent David Havird.

The lockdown was put in place out of caution as deputies search for a robbery suspect in the area. The lockdown has since been lifted.

The schools that were on lockdown include Concrete Primary, Powdersville Elementary, Powdersville Middle, and Powdersville High School.

Students will be dismissed at the normal time today, school officials say.

According to Det. Nikki Carson, a suspect attempted to break into a home in Easley.

Two suspects are in custody and deputies are searching for a third suspect.
