COLUMBUS, Ohio – A Westerville man wanted in outstanding warrants fornon-violent offenses is in the Delaware County Jail after several schools went into lockdown when he was spotted in the area.

Andrew Ankrim (above), 41, was seen walking near 3584 Home Road in Powell and was last running away from the immediate area in the 8000 block of Liberty Road, Delaware County Sheriff Russell Martin said.

As a precaution, several nearby schools were placed in a lockdown to prevent Ankrim from running into one of them, Martin said.

The schools were expected to remain under lockdown for the remainder of the day, a district official said.

Martin says Ankrim has outstanding warrants for OVI, disorderly conduct and unpaid child support.
