The Pine County Sheriff's Office says a teenager who ran away from home and took two guns with him has been taken into custody after he was located in Chisago County.

The 15-year-old boy's father called police on Friday to report his son was missing and that he may have taken a hunting rifle, shotgun and ammunition, the sheriff's office said.

The boy is a student in the Pine City school district. Pine County schools went into a lockdown Monday as a cautionary measure, school officials said.

The teen was taken into custody without incident and the guns were recovered.

Officials did not say why the teen ran away.
