Sex offender warning has schools in lockdown
LLOYDMINSTER, Alta. - Public schools in Lloydminster on the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary are in lockdown because a potentially violent high-risk sex offender is on the loose.
Michael Diachuk, director of education with the Lloydminster Public School Division, says doors are locked and students are being kept inside following a warning from the RCMP.
Mounties said Tuesday that an Edmonton man's electronic monitoring bracelet was found on the roof of a business in Lloydminster â€” it had been cut off.
Michael Sean Stanley has a long history of sex offences, including taking children from playgrounds.
Diachuk says high school students who want to go outside are being asked to get into a buddy system so they're not alone.
He says the precautionary measures will continue until the danger has passed.
