Lock downs at two Provo schools are over now that a suspect is in custody.

Police became aware of "an indirect threat" against children who were at Franklin Elementary School and Dixon Middle School about 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, said Provo Police Lt. Mathew Suifanua.

The schools brought the children who were outside at recess inside and kept them in the buildings until police found the suspect about 1 p.m., Suifanua said.

Once the man was in custody, the schools lifted the lock downs.

As of 1:30 p.m., police were questioning the man about the incident.
