An Iowa man who prompted a school lockdown in southeastern South Dakota is facing charges in multiple alleged incidents in the region over the past six weeks.
Attorney General Marty Jackley says 32-year-old Scott Hughes, of Akron, Iowa, faces charges including burglary, arson and intentional damage to property.
It was not immediately clear Thursday whether Hughes had obtained a lawyer. Home telephone listings for him in Akron and in the South Dakota city of Elk Point have been disconnected.
Hughes was arrested Wednesday in Akron after allegedly going on a crime spree and fleeing from law officers. The Elk Point-Jefferson School in Elk Point was put on lockdown status for a little less than two hours as a precaution while Hughes was on the run.
