UNION, Mo. (KMOV.com) – The Union R-XI School District is on lockout after a man wanted for a drug offense ran from officers in the area.

The district issued the lockout as a safety precaution after a man and woman were seen at the courthouse. When officers approached the duo and asked for their IDs they discovered they each had a warrant out for their arrest. The woman was taken into custody and the man then ran from the area.  

Officials said the man, who was wanted on a drug possession charge out of St. Louis County, is not considered dangerous. 

During the lockout the schools will operate as normal, but all outside activities are suspended.
