A man's brief flight from a court office Wednesday led to an even briefer lockdown at Farmington Junior High and Farmington Elementary schools.

Davis County sheriff's Sgt. Susan Poulsen said the suspect apparently was responding to a court summons on another matter just before noon when staff at 2nd District Court in Farmington learned there also was a warrant out for his arrest relating to a burglary charge.

When notified he would be taken into custody, however, the suspect fled on foot.

Farmington police asked the schools be locked down while they searched for the man, who was soon located near the courthouse and arrested without further incident.

The lockdown lasted 15-20 minutes.

Salt Lake City police detectives are also interested in talking to the suspect to see if he's the man who burglarized nine Sugar House businesses from September to March, said Farmington Police Chief Wayne Hansen.
