Arrest made as Arlington schools go into lockdown

ARLINGTON – A 36-year-old Arlington woman was arrested and booked into the Marysville Jail for disrupting school, leading to a lockdown.

Arlington Public Schools was notified by Arlington police early March 22 of the woman with a warrant for her arrest for theft out of Marysville.
The woman has recently visited local schools, distracted office personnel with questions regarding non-existent students, and stolen purses and other personal items.
Eagle Creek Elementary and Post Middle schools were placed in a modified lockdown while the arrest was made.
Deputy Police Chief Jonathan Ventura praised the schools’ staff.
“Arlington Public Schools followed the All-In-Crime Prevention campaign to the letter,” Ventura said in a city news release. “We had the best outcome today, because a member of their staff was ‘all in’ and reported the suspicious activity immediately.”
