SAN JOSE -- Some residents and an elementary school in Willow Glen were briefly ordered to shelter-in-place Thursday morning while police searched for burglars, authorities said.

Schallenberger Elementary School on Koch Lane was ordered to lock its doors -- though instruction continued -- about 9:45 a.m., and several residents reported getting the same request from police, who were searching an area roughly bounded by Gerald Way and Cottle and Husted avenues.

A police helicopter was summoned to assist the search. The shelter-in-place was lifted at the school at 10:20 a.m.

Further details on the police search were not immediately available.
