Two schools were put on lockdown in Solana Beach on Wednesday as deputies searched for a man who eluded them as they tried to serve a warrant, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies were trying to serve the warrant for two commercial burglaries to a 23-year-old man who lives near Skyline Elementary School, according to deputies.
The man allegedly slipped out of the house and escaped.

The man is not believed to be armed and does not have a history of violence. He remains at large.
