Moore, OK: Arab male investigated for suspicious behavior at local high school

[Ed. – OK, they’re downplaying it, but see the kinds of questions the intruder was asking.  This is a legitimate concern.]

Police have made contact with a man who was the subject of an unauthorized entry at Moore High School last week.

Police say the man, who has not yet been identified, is cooperating and there is no threat toward the high school. They first announced they were searching for the man on Wednesday.

The incident was not reported to police until Sept. 26. Police held a press conference Wednesday afternoon regarding the incident. Police described the person as an Arab male in his 40s with a thick Arabic accent. They say while he was on campus the man contacted two students and a teacher and asked “suspicious” questions.

According to Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis, who spoke during the press conference, the man was able to get inside of the school through an unlocked door at the entrance of the performing arts building. The entire incident only lasted approximately three or four minutes. …
