CRIME: Lockdown at Highline High; Police action at Social Security office
It’s been a lively day in Burien today (Tuesday, Feb. 28), with two crime-related incidents to report:
- There was a lockdown at Highline High School this morning before Noon, apparently caused by a “verbal threat,” according to Catherine Carbone Rogers of the Highline School District. The lockdown was in effect for 30-minutes before being lifted.
- There was a major police turnout, with officers from Homeland Security on the scene at the Social Security Administration Offices at 151 SW 156th Street. Reports are that some kind of “device” was found in the parking lot, and the building was evacuated as a precaution.
Far as we know, there were no injuries involved with either incident.
As we learn more about these events, we’ll update this post.
