Sigourney Elementary School went into lockdown on Friday as they were advised by local law enforcement to keep students in the building until a situation a few blocks away from the school was resolved.

Students were advised to stay indoors as Keokuk County Deputies attempted to pinpoint the exact whereabouts of 34 year old Justin Jordan, wanted for an alleged burglary and assault in Oskaloosa. Jordan was traced to a home about 2 blocks west of the school where he was taken into custody and charged with first degree burglary, a class B felony.

After getting the go ahead from authorities, children were released a little before 5pm.
