An adult male dressed in camouflage and camouflage face paint is in police custody Thursday morning after he was found in a field behind the Sulphur Springs Middle School.

At approximately 8 a.m., a SSISD Police Officer alerted Sulphur Springs Police to the presence of a suspicious individual behind the school. The school went into a soft lockdown according to Rusty Hardin, SSISD Communications Director. A soft lockdown is a security procedure that heightens watch around the perimeter of the school.

According to Jason Ricketson, Patrol Captain for SSPD, all available SSPD  personnel responded. Ricketson said officers found the man in a pasture away from the school. SSPD is questioning the individual. Ricketson said the man had no connection to the school or students in the school according to early questioning. The investigation will continue. 

State law governs certain acts in and around Texas public schools. Those laws will be applied in the investigation and any charges filed, according to Ricketson.
