LEBANON, Conn. (WTNH) — Lebanon schools were placed in a brief lockdown Wednesday afternoon after a bank robbery took place down the street from the schools.

Just before 12:45 p.m., Connecticut State Police Troopers from Troop K responded to a report of a bank robbery at the Savings Institute Bank, located at 554 Exeter Road in Lebanon. There were no injuries reported from the bank robbery, but all Lebanon schools were placed into lockdown as a precaution since the bank is located down the street.
