Suspected car thieves who Lexington Police said caused Bryan Station High School and Bryan Station Middle School to go on 'Heightened Alert' Wednesday have been arrested.

Police said the car was stolen from a Burlington Coat Factory Tuesday afternoon, and was involved in a shoplifting incident at Wal-mart Wednesday afternoon.

Police said when they attempted to pull the car over near Bryan Station High School, the driver of the car drove off.

They said a tire on the car blew out shortly after hitting a curb.

Police said three of the four juveniles inside the car were arrested. Police were still searching for a fourth suspect.

As part of the 'Heightened Alert' status, students weren't allowed to leave school.

Parents were finally able to pick children up from Bryan Station Middle School and Bryan Station High School around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.
