POLICE: Two Louisville schools placed on heightened security while police searched for break-in suspect

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two Louisville schools were put on heightened security briefly Friday morning as police searched for break-in suspects.

According to Louisville Metro Police spokeswoman Alicia Smiley, Olmsted South and Iroquois High School were placed on heightened security while police searched for suspects in the area.

Since then, WDRB News has learned that kids were banging on the front and back doors of a victim's home. Police say the kids -- who are students at Iroquois High School and Olmsted South -- became spooked when they learned there was someone inside. 

The victim then called police. The students were later apprehended.

A spokesperson for JCPS says the heightened security alerts for both schools have since been lifted. There was never any direct threat to the students or teachers at either school, according to a Metrosafe dispatcher.
