DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office tells BocaNewsNow.com that American Heritage Delray campus, on Linton Blvd., was briefly locked down this evening when a trespasser was seen on campus.

The man, who authorities said did not speak English, does apparently live in the area. It was not immediately clear how he gained access to the campus.

American Heritage maintains a very large, armed security force comprised of off-duty Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Deputies and other highly trained operatives. We have learned they immediately initiated a lockdown protocol — and summoned additional police — when the man was seen.

While school was not in session at the time of the incident around 5 pm, students were on campus taking part in sports and other afternoon activities. Parents on campus, picking up their children, were caught in the middle of the lockdown which we are told included a PBSO helicopter hovering above.

Police confirm that they assisted their colleagues on the American Heritage security force in ensuring that no other trespassers were on property. We will update once we receive the name of the man arrested and the official charges filed.
