Duval school police lieutenant arrested on Michigan warrant
A Duval County School Police Department lieutenant was arrested Tuesday as a fugitive from justice, according to the school district.
Lt. Sean MacMaster was arrested about 10:30 a.m. at a school district police office at 1720 Lansdowne Drive on a fugitive warrant for extradition out of Michigan, according to his arrest report.
“We have the highest expectations of professional and personal conduct for those who are charged with serving and protecting our students,” School Police Director Micheal Edwards said. “We are monitoring this investigation closely and will take appropriate action as the facts of the matter emerge.”
District officials gave no information about the reason for the arrest, other than to say the charges are “not related to the school district or any student in the district.”
“The district is closely monitoring this situation,” spokeswoman Laureen Ricks added. “The individual is currently in custody. Should he be released from custody, he will not have any contact with students pending the outcome of an internal investigation.”
MacMaster had been with the district for about 11 months, and did not come from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, Ricks said. But district officials said they had no other comment since the investigation into MacMaster remains active.
