Bloomfield schools on lock down after attempted entry

BLOOMFIELD, Ind. — An school district in eastern Greene County remains on lockdown even after the arrest of a juvenile who prompted security concerns.

The Greene County Daily World and The Herald-Times of Bloomington report the Bloomfield School District reduced a lockdown originally scheduled to last all week to today only. Superintendent Dan Sichting says the district wants to guard against potential “copycat” issues.

Sichting says Bloomfield Junior-Senior High School Principal David Dean confronted the juvenile attempting to enter the school Thursday, and the youth later approached a teacher claiming to be a police officer looking for a female student.

Police were present during Friday’s dismissal at the school about 45 miles southeast of Terre Haute and 25 miles west of Bloomington. Sichting says the youth was arrested Friday night on a Clay County warrant alleging he sexually assaulted someone.
