YORK COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — The York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office says a robbery suspect was taken into custody Friday.

Ezau Ledezma was wanted for robbery in connection to an incident from a few weeks ago. Authorities say he was seen just before 2 p.m. Friday near the 4300 block of Route 17.

Lt. Dennis Ivey says Ledezma robbed someone he knew Friday afternoon and then ran off. He was seen just before 2 p.m. Friday near the 4300 block of Route 17.

Ivey says Ledezma was later caught in Newport News.

Grafton Bethel Elementary School was put on modified lockdown for a short time as authorities searched for Ledezma. That lockdown has since been lifted.

Ledezma has several warrants for his arrest out of Newport News, too, according to the sheriff’s office.
