A paroled sex offender has been taken into police custody after he was located on the Skidmore College campus after a manhunt earlier today. Classes resumed normally after a lockdown was lifted, but it was a strange day on campus.
Students and faculty received a campus alert via the school website, social media, text message, and email around 7 a.m. announcing the lockdown. Students on campus were asked to stay in their rooms and remain quiet.
Around 8:30, Saratoga Springs police located Shane Harding on the campus near a trail heading into Skidmore’s North Woods.
