Police were unable to locate a suspect and a passenger who allegedly stole a car, the Sacramento Police Department said Friday evening. Taylor Street Elementary was put on lockdown during the day while the search was ongoing.

Sacramento Police Department spokesman Sgt. Vance Chandler said a short vehicle pursuit and foot pursuit “due to a stolen vehicle” took place Friday morning just south of Robla Community Park, off Bell Avenue between Norwood Avenue and Rio Linda Boulevard.

A search perimeter was set up before 11:30 a.m. for at least one outstanding suspect, and the police activity prompted a lockdown of Taylor Street Elementary School, Chandler said. The lockdown ended just before 1 p.m., Robla School District Superintendent Ruben Reyes said.

No other details were immediately available.
