MOLALLA, OR (KPTV) -

A search for a stolen car suspect shut down a Molalla school Wednesday.

Country Christian School canceled classes while police scoured the area Highway 211 with a K-9.

Molalla Police Chief Rod Lucich said the car was stolen from a home on Cole Avenue. The car's owner had it warming up in the driveway at the time.

Officers responded, spotted the stolen car and then witnessed the driver bail from the car and run off.

At this time, the suspect remains at large. Police describe him as a Hispanic man in blue clothing and a white baseball cap.

Country Christian School, which has 200 students enrolled, already had an early release scheduled for 11:45 a.m. It was closed for the day before students arrived for classes.
