Bartlett High School was put on lockdown around 8 a.m. Tuesday when police say a student, 19-year-old Trevor Barras, hit two different vehicles on Muldoon, in a stolen SUV, on his way to school and trying to hide out inside the school.
Anchorage Police say Barres was not able to get into a classroom because of the lockdown. Officers arrested him in the hallway around 8:30 a.m.
According to police, one of the drivers who was hit by Barras chased him into the Bartlett parking lot. Police say that driver was on his way to his own DUI trial when Barras ran into him. The driver was taken into custody and his truck towed for driving without a license.
Christie Hayes, the owner of the stolen SUV, said it was taken more than a week ago from her driveway.
Hayes says the keys to the SUV were stolen out of the cab of another vehicle at her house several days beforehand. She says the SUV was normally blocked in by another vehicle, but last Saturday night it wasn't and the vehicle was stolen. Hayes suspects whoever took the SUV had been staking it out for several days.
Anchorage Police say the stolen SUV was involved in another hit-and-run.
Barras is charged with two counts of hit-and-run, possession of a stolen vehicle and two counts of driving without insurance. He's being held at Anchorage Jail.
APD says no students were in danger and the lockdown was lifted shortly after 8:30 a.m.Contact Todd Walker at email@example.com
