A Limestone County Schools official says that four schools were placed on modified lockdown on Wednesday, East Limestone High, Johnson Elementary, Creekside Elementary, and Creekside Primary.

A spokesman for the Limestone County Sherriff's office said they were trying to pull Benjamin Hill over for attempting to use counterfeit money at Heritage Food Mart. According to media sources the incident occurred in Limestone County, and police chased him into Madison County where he got out of a stolen van. 

The lockdown was lifted at 12:45 p.m. Hill was caught on Harvest Road in Madison County after a 3-hour manhunt. K9 officers found him hiding in a nearby yard.

Hill was taken to Limestone County Jail and will receive felony charges. The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office asks anyone with information to call 256-232-0111.
