Police chase prompts soft lockdowns at several La Grange schools

Police chase prompts soft lockdowns at several La Grange schools”

Several schools in the La Grange area were on soft lockdown September 14 after a auto chase resulting from crimes including a reported armed robbery ended in Countryside, officials said.

Officials at Lyons Township High School report they were told a robbery in Chicago resulted in a vehicle chase that ended in Countryside, with three people being arrested but a fourth person getting away.

Mark Kraus of LaGrange Highlands was driving on Plainfield Road when the crash occurred. Police in Countryside said that a joint task force involving Chicago police and the U.S. Marshals were conducting surveillance on a suspect in Lyons wanted for probation violations and an investigative alert issued by Chicago police. After a search by multiple agencies, a fourth person was not found, police said.

Both campuses of Lyons Township High School, St. Cletus, St. Johns and Spring/Gurrie schools were all on soft lockdown, officials said.

The soft lockdown meant no outdoor student activities would take place and building access from the outside was restricted.

However, because of a continued police presence in the area bounded by Plainfield Road, Brainard Avenue, 55th Street and Willow Springs Road, the district had delayed buses to that region.
