This morning deputies with the Marlboro County Sheriff's Office are looking for a man believed to be involved in a break-in at a pharmacy in Scotland County, NC.
They are looking for Joseph Lockamy.
They say he, along with two other men broke into the pharmacy before leading police on a chase that ended in the Blenheim area of Marlboro County.
Deputies say when the men jumped out of the car, they ran into a wooded area.
Two men are now in custody, Jeffrey Polson and Ronnie Adams, Jr.
Right now crews are concentrating their search in the Brownsville Community of Marlboro County.
The Chesterfield County Sheriff's Office is assisting by providing its helicopter.
Chief Deputy Charles Lemon tells us the Marlboro County Sheriff's Office called residents in the area through its dispatch system to alert them about the search. This story previously contained a reference to residents being called through "a reverse 911 system." We have since been informed by attorneys for REVERSE 911 that REVERSE 911 is the registered trademark of Plant Equipment Inc. and REVERSE 911 should be used exclusively in reference to PlantCML products and services. We apologize for the error.
Blenheim Primary School and Blenheim Elementary/Middle School have been put on lock down as a precaution.
Marlboro County School Officials say the school day will continue as normal, the only exception is that students won't go outside.
Officials say parents can sign their children out of class, but they advise against that.
