Highlands Ranch schools put on secure perimeter for police activity


Three Douglas County schools in the Highlands Ranch area were put on lockdown briefly and then under a secure perimeter for police response unrelated to the schools.

Mountain Vista High School, Mountain Ridge Middle School and Summit View Elementary were secured the afternoon of Aug. 10 when police received a report of an intoxicated driver in the area, according to Douglas County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Cocha Heyden.  

Heyden said the security measures were taken out of an abundance of caution. Police have since arrested the driver, Heyden said. 

Heyden added that there is no danger to the schools at this time.
