LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Police responded to a situation near the Frederick Douglass High School campus Tuesday afternoon.

Police say officers spotted a stolen car on Winchester Road, near the school. They say the driver and passenger got out and ran. We’re told officers were able to take the passenger into custody but they are still looking for the driver.

FCPS officials say the school was placed on heightened alert and dismissal was delayed for a little bit. School officials say they have since resumed dismissal with a heavy police presence.

They say students were dismissed one hallway at a time and police officers walked students to buses. For students who drove to school, or were being picked up by cars, staff members walked those students to the cars.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Lexington Police at (859) 258-3600. Anonymous tips can be submitted to Bluegrass Crime Stoppers by calling (859) 253-2020, online at www.bluegrasscrimestoppers.com, or through the P3 tips app available at www.p3tips.com.
