UPDATE, May 3, 3:10 p.m.: A burglary at a residence in the 1800 block of NW 205th street on the King/Snohomish county line prompted two Edmonds schools to be put on lockdown Friday afternoon as police searched for two male suspects, said Sgt. Cindi West of the King County Sheriff's Office.

"We had no indication of weapons," West said, adding that the lockdowns "were just a precaution."
