SHARE Intruders lead to lockdown at Sandburg High in Orland Park

(ORLAND PARK) A southwest suburban high school was placed on soft lockdown Wednesday morning after two people entered the building without permission.

Carl Sandburg High School at 13300 S. La Grange Rd. in Orland Park was put on soft lockdown about 9:30 a.m. after two males entered the school “without invitation,” according to a statement posted on the Consolidated High School District 230 website.

A student told staff the intruders were not students at the school, and a staff member saw at least one of them looking inside a locker in the south wing of the school, Orland Park police said in a statement.

The school was placed on a soft lockdown while police searched for the suspects, and the Cook County Sheriff’s police bomb squad searched the building, police said.

Two teens, ages 17 and 18, were arrested at 9:55 a.m. in a parking lot near 135th and Southwest Highway, police said.

“At this time we have no information that there were any direct threats made to the school, students or staff by these subjects,” police said in the statement.

No charges have been filed and the investigation is ongoing.
