Robbery and bear prompt school lockdown
GLENSHAW, Pa. (AP) - December 4, 2012 (WPVI) -- Robbers and police cars and a bear, oh my!
Officials say a Pittsburgh-area school was briefly locked down and students later missed outdoor recess after police received separate reports of a home invasion robbery and a bear on the loose Monday morning.
Shaler Township police notified administrators at Marzolf Primary School to lock its doors about 9:30 a.m. after two men armed with a pistol stole $800 in a home invasion and ran away. Later that morning, students had to be kept in at recess after a woman reported a bear on the loose. Police called in the Pennsylvania Game Commission.
Students in the school, which includes kindergarten through fourth grade, didn't even know about the home invasion lockdown but principal Marty Martynuska says, "It was a pretty eventful Monday morning."
