Welcome to Android Central! Go to Settings>Security>Automatically Lock. What interval is that set to? If it's 2 minutes, for example, that means that the screen will still be unlocked for up to 2 minutes after the screen times out. So if you were testing this out within that period of time, the screen wasn't locked in the first place. Try changing the Automatically Lock interval to Immediately, and see if it still happens.
