Guilford County, NC -- Sheriff's deputies arrested four people following a car break-in that forced three Guilford County Schools to go on lockdown Monday afternoon.

David Carlton Norton Jr., 33, Donnie Ray Willard, 26, Samantha Coble, 23 (not pictured), and Leslie Elaine Coore, 29, were all arrested in relation to this incident.

Deputies responded to a convenience store at N.C. Hwy 62 and Coltrane Mill Road right after 1 p.m. Monday.

The caller said the four suspects had broken into a car and stole two prescription medication bottles, along with two loaded guns. The four ran from the scene into a wooded area.

According to a news release, deputies set up a perimeter and used K-9s and aircraft to search for the suspects.

Guilford County Schools also confirmed that three schools-- Southern Elementary, Middle and High Schools--were on lockdown while officers searched for the suspects.

Deputies found two of the suspects and then narrowed their search to a mobile home on Drake Road. Officers eventually forced their way into the home where they found and arrested another one of the suspects.

The K-9 unit found the final suspect in another wooded area, deputies say.

David Norton had recently been released on bond and was in the Electronic Monitoring Program for charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Deputies say his tracking device did help them find Norton following Monday's incident.

The sheriff's office has interviewed all four suspects and placed them in the Guilford County Jail. There is currently no information on their charges or bonds.
