GILBERT, AZ - The "precautionary lockdowns" at two Gilbert-area schools Friday have been lifted.
Islands Elementary and Mesquite High School were placed in a precautionary lockdown due to police activity in the area, according to Gilbert police.
Gilbert Police were looking for two suspects related to a stolen vehicle case. The lockdown was lifted shortly after 12:30 p.m.
"Both suspects are still outstanding," Gilbert Police said from their Twitter account. "The stolen vehicle has been recovered."
Students were not in any danger, according to a message posted on the school's website.
