Police are still trying to identify a pair of suspects in two attempted burglaries in Hillsborough that caused a brief lockdown at an elementary school on Monday afternoon. Officers responded to a 911 call reporting a possible burglary in progress at a home on Farm Lane at about 12:20 p.m., Hillsborough police said. About 20 minutes later, a second call came in reporting an attempted break-in at a home on Denise Road.

In both cases, two men had been trying to pry open a door when they were discovered by the homeowners, police said. While police were searching for the suspects, nearby West Hillsborough Elementary School went into lockdown. The suspects were not found, and the lockdown was lifted at about 1:25 p.m., police said. One of the suspects was described as a black male wearing a flannel shirt and blue jeans. The second was also described as a black male, and was wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans, police said. There was no report of a vehicle associated with the suspects, police said.
