Lockdown at Furry lifted

Sandusky Register Staff • Apr 4, 2013 at 3:25 PM

A Gildona Drive resident, who was known to have firearms, bolted out his backdoor when police arrived at his home after receiving a call that he was suicidal, Perkins police Chief Ken Klamar said.

A 6-foot privacy fence separates the Gildona Drive home from the school, but police put Furry Elementary School into lockdown mode at 11:21 a.m. as a precaution.

Officers soon arrested the man in his own backyard.

Though a witness said the man had a gun, police didn't find one when they stopped him.

He was taken to the Perkins police station to be questioned and the Furry lockdown was lifted after about 15 minutes.
