OWASSO – The Owasso High School campus has been placed on lockdown for the second time in less than a week. Reports began coming to InsideOwasso.Com around 9:10 AM on Tuesday morning that the measure was put into place by school administration.

Deputy Chief Jason Woodruff with the Owasso Police Department said that a shoplifter from the nearby Sam’s Club had evaded officers and was on the loose in a nearby neighborhood.

Woodruff says he did not believe the search posed an immediate threat to students, but that the lockdown was put in place as a precautionary measure as the search continued.

The lockdown was lifted just after 9:30 AM.

On Friday, several Owasso campuses were locked down after a burglary incident at the Greens Apartment complex near East 86th Street and North 129th. Three of the four suspects were eventually caught.
