Incident caused James Bay Community School to be locked down.

A man is in custody in connection to a break and enter that put the James Bay Community School on lockdown Friday morning.

The man was caught after Victoria police received a tip from a member of the public who spotted the suspect hiding in a bush. He was eventually apprehended near an apartment building on St. James Street, just across the street form the school.

Around 9:30 a.m. this morning, police alerted the public they were searching for a male and female suspect, who could possibly be carrying several bags. The James Bay Community School was locked down out of an abundance of caution.
