DENVER — Eagleton Elementary School was on lockout for about 90 minutes Friday morning after a suspicious vehicle was seen near the school, the Denver Police Department said.
All staff and students were moved to east side of school and robo calls were sent to families to inform them that all students are safe, according to police.
The lockout was issued around 8:35 a.m. after police saw a tan BMW on the west side of Hooker Street with a sign in front of the passenger side window that said “F*** DPD” and a box in the back looking suspicious, authorities said.
The bomb squad was on the scene and determined it was safe.
The owner of the vehicle was arrested and was held for possession of a hoax device, police said. The man’s identity has not been released.
Police cleared the scene shortly after 10 a.m., saying there were “no ongoing safety concerns.”
