Clayton Quigley is still on the lam.
As of Monday afternoon, Ridge Meadows RCMP were still hunting for Quigley, the man suspected in a break-and-enter and for causing a lockdown at a local elementary school on Thursday.
After police tried to arrest the suspect in an Albion business, Quigley got away, and as a precaution Albion Elementary was locked down for about half an hour.
The business was fairly close to the school, so, according to police, it was locked down for precautionary reasons.
Police were called about 8: 30 a.m. to the Albion business, and after a scuffle, the suspect escaped.
The officer was not injured.
Quigley, 28, is described as a Caucasian man, 20 to 30 years old with a red beard. He is five feet, eight to 10 inches tall with a slim build. He was wearing a black hoodie, green work-style pants, a black backpack, and large black sunglasses.
He was last seen running north towards Albion Fields for Kids.
"At this time we are still looking for Mr. Quigley. In addition to the break in, he has warrants out for his arrest on unrelated matters," said RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop.
A police dog was used to search the area, but to no avail.
If a member of the public sees anyone suspicious, they are asked to call 911 and not try to stop or apprehend him.
In another Thursday incident, three schools in Pitt Meadows were also locked down.
Pitt Meadows Secondary staff had seen a man on the school property who was "assessed as a potential threat," said Irena Pochop, communications manager for the school district.
That lockdown was done, again as a precautionary measure, and both Pitt Meadows and Davie Jones elementaries were also locked down.
"Police locked down both schools to ensure the safety of all students and faculty," said Dunlop.
That suspect was a young offender and was taken into police custody.
