Deputies trying to locate man who caused Pelion High School lockout Wednesday

Pelion, SC (Paul Kirby) - Lexington County sheriff's deputies are attempting to locate a man who eluded them after they tried to serve him with a warrant Wednesday afternoon. While they were actively searching for the man, Pelion High School implemented their lockout procedure because he was believed to be in proximity to the school. 

According to officials, they have a warrant for Creole Barnes who has a long criminal history. When law enforcement officials tried to serve him with the warrant, he fled. 

The school went on lockout at approximately 1:00 p.m.Wednesday. A lockout does not mean there is imminent danger to the school. This procedure simply ensures that all the students and staff are indoors, and the exterior doors are locked to prevent an unauthorized person from entering the school. All activities inside the school go on as normal. 

As of Thursday, September 17th, Barnes had not been booked into the Lexington County Detention Center according to the sheriff’s department online records.
