FERNDALE, Mich. - All precautionary safety measures at Ferndale High School and Middle School -- which are on the same campus on Pinecrest Drive just north of 8 Mile Road -- have been lifted.

The schools had been under a "shelter-in-place" -- meaning students were kept in classrooms --  while police search the area for a breaking and entering suspect. 

Police said they were able to find the suspect near 8 Mile Road and took him into custody.
