A transient man walked inside Columbia River High School on Wednesday morning, prompting a short lockdown at the school.

According to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, school resource officers and district security staff responded to a report of a transient man who walked into the school unauthorized, then into a boys restroom near the school’s entrance, around 9:30 a.m.

The school was briefly placed on lockdown while deputies detained the man, identified as Jasen Nathan Davis, 43. The sheriff’s office said Davis was booked into the Clark County Jail on suspicion of criminal trespassing and methamphetamine possession.

Davis was arrested without incident, the sheriff’s office said, and didn’t interact with any students or non-security staff.
