A man who triggered a brief school lockdown was subsequently taken into custody by Red Deer RCMP on Wednesday morning.

RCMP received reports of a disturbance at a Morrisroe residence and then at École Camille J. Lerouge School.

At approximately 6:30 a.m. police responded to a report of an intoxicated man who was causing a disturbance at a Morrisroe home. The 29-year-old suspect had departed by the time RCMP arrived at the home.

RCMP received a second complaint regarding the same man at about 8:30 a.m. when he went to École Camille J. Lerouge School and began to again cause a disturbance.

École Camille J. Lerouge School was then placed in a lockdown and students were kept out of the building until the situation was rectified.

The lockdown lasted about 20 minutes and ended after the man was arrested. Classes then resumed as normal.

RCMP took the man into custody without incident. No charges are expected to be laid.
