Police take custody of men carrying air rifles on school property

Stratford Police took four people into custody Tuesday, Jan. 8, after reports said they were carrying weapons in the woods near Wooster Middle School shortly after noon.

According to Doing It Local, a passerby witnessed the four people in the woods behind Wooster with what appeared to be rifles. The school immediately went in to lockdown.

The children were “safe and secure during the process” Principal Jack Lynch told Doing It Local.

The four people were detained around 12:30 p.m. with what appeared to be air rifles or pellet guns.

The lockdown lasted for approximately 30 minutes as police searched the Lincoln Street area where the school is located.

A vehicle was reportedly towed from the area to police headquarters for investigation.

The lockdown was lifted around 12:50 p.m., but police remained at the school until dismissal.
