EAST HADDAM, CT (WFSB) -

A man who sparked security precautions at East Haddam schools earlier this week turned himself into police on a number of charges, including attempted murder.

Jared Rennie, 34, of East Haddam, was arrested on Tuesday just before 11:30 p.m., state police said.

Troopers said the arrest was from an altercation between two people.

They've been searching for Rennie ever since.

The search on Monday put East Haddam Elementary, Nathan Hale-Ray Middle and Nathan Hale-Ray High schools into "secure mode." That meant students could move about freely but outdoor activities were canceled.

Rennie was arrested without incident when he turned himself in.

Rennie was charged with intentional cruelty to persons, stealing a firearm, criminal use of a firearm, criminal possession of a firearm, criminal attempted murder, second-degree assault, first-degree threatening, first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree kidnapping and first-degree unlawful restraint.

He was held on a $1,500 bond and faced a judge on Wednesday in Middletown.

Further details about the case were not available because a judge sealed Rennie's arrest warrant.
