School lockout lifted

The Lebanon Police Department responded to a call to assist Linn County Sheriff’s Deputies at 425 Crowfoot Rd. at 8:28 a.m. on Feb. 1.

“An adult male got into an argument with his father who also lives at the address,” said Sgt. Patrick O’Malley. “Initially the call came in that he threatened his father.”

The investigation later showed that there was not a threat to the 57-year-old father, it was only a verbal argument, O’Malley said.

Because the residence is close to Seven Oak Middle School, LPD notified the school administrators of the situation and asked them to notify LPD if they saw the 28-year-old man.

LPD searched for the man from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., he said.

“The male called his father back, apologizing for freaking out and he said he was fine,” O’Malley said.

In addition to Seven Oak Middle School, the Lebanon Community School District made the decision to lockout Cascade Elementary School and Lebanon High School.
