ROBERTSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – Two Robertson County schools were placed on a soft lockdown Wednesday and Thursday as deputies search for a man accused of violating his bond conditions.

According to the Robertson County Sheriff’s Office, Sandy Duke has been on the run for the last 18 to 24 hours.

A school spokesman said on the advice of authorities, both Springfield High and Krisle Elementary schools were placed on a soft lockdown as a precaution.

“A soft lockdown allows regular classroom activity to continue in school while keeping all exterior doors locked with no unauthorized entrance or exit allowed,” explained schools spokesman Jim Bellis.

The lockdown will continue until clearance is given by the sheriff’s office, Bellis said.

Duke is believed to be unarmed and no immediate threat is perceived.

He was last seen wearing a white tank top and khaki shorts.

Deputies are concentrating their search around Highway 49 and Wilks Road.

Anyone who sees Duke or any suspicious activity is urged to not approach him and call dispatch at 615-384-4911.
