According to Colette Zea, Moreland School District assistant superintenent of human resources, the shelter-in-Place at Payne, Anderson elementary schools as well as Easterbrook-Discovery Charter School were lifted at 12:20 p.m.
"We were notified that police had three suspects in custody and we then notified our parents through ConnectEd," Zea said.

The three suspects were arrested for burglary and possession of stolen property, San Jose Police said.
Three local elementary schools within the Moreland School District had a "Shelter in Place" called Monday morning due to a San Jose Police investigation.
At about 10:10 a.m., the San Jose Police Department received a call about a residential burglary in progress at 1300 Block of Wylie Way in West San Jose.
According to the police report, "the victim reported that unknown suspect(s) forced entry into her home while she was inside. The victim fled out of her house and called police to report the incident. The suspect’s fled the scene and an associated vehicle was provided to arriving police officers."
The suspects and the associated car were believed to be located near Payne and Anderson elementary schools as well as Easterbrook-Discovery Charter School. All three schools were placed in a "Shelter in Place" as a safety precaution, police said.
"With a shelter in place, the school continues normal instructional activities and duties until the administrator gives the all clear signal," said Colette Zea, Moreland School District assistant superintenent of human resources. "All doors locked. Parents will be notified at the end of the day because there's no immediate threat to the students right now. In this situation, the threat is occurring in the surrounding neighborhood."
