A SWAT team was called to search an Alabama school campus early Thursday after sheriff’s deputies believed three burglary suspects may have been hiding there.

Morgan County Sheriff’s Office deputies said burglary suspects fled from Hartselle Police into Falkville, Alabama, early Thursday.

Falkville Police were able to stop the vehicle but the subjects fled on foot in the area of Hwy 31 and W Piney Grove Rd in Falkville.

Morgan County Sheriff’s Office Deputies and Cullman County K9 units assisted with search of the area.

Due to the proximity of the Falkville Schools, the Morgan County Sheriff’s SWAT team was activated.

The SWAT team and SRO searched all areas of the school campus, including buildings and busses. The campus is clear. The SRO will be on campus while Falkville Police and deputies remain in the area.

The subjects, described as 3 black males, have not been located. Residents are asked to report any suspicious activity to Morgan County 911.
