WESTPORT - Greens Farms Academy in Westport was put on lockdown this afternoon after a stolen Jeep was found on the property.

Police had previously pursued the Jeep before it got off I-95 at exit 19 near the school.

Police say the area was locked down for precautionary reasons because they were not sure if the man who stole the vehicle was still in the area. Police also warned neighbors of the situation.

Parents say they were nervous, yet relieved as they picked their kids up at the end of the day.

Authorities are still looking for a black 1996 Honda Civic that the suspect allegedly stole from the school parking after leaving the Jeep there.
