McMinnville Schools Placed On Lock-Down

school_lockdown1Warren County High School and Hickory Creek Elementary School in McMinnville were placed on lock-down briefly Wednesday after a man wanted by authorities ran from a traffic stop near the schools.
Warren County Sheriff Jackie Matheny said a suspect, identified as Jeff Hodges, was spotted traveling near the high school and was pulled over by a deputy. Hodge was wanted on a burglary charge. Matheny said Hodges ran from the officer, prompting a foot chase just east of the high school. The Sheriff said Hodges was never on school property and students and staff at the schools were never in any danger. The schools were placed on lock-down as a precaution.
Matheny said Hodges remains at large.
