Woodbury Teen Charged With Weapons Possession At Stillwater School

Blake Andrew Tomasko, 19, is facing up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

A 19-year-old Woodbury man was arrested for possessing brass knuckles at St. Croix Valley Alternative Learning Center after police responded to a report of a student who smelled like marijuana.

Blake Andrew Tomasko was charged by the Washington County Attorney's Office with one count of felony possession of a dangerous weapon on school property. His first court appearance is set for Dec. 28.

According to a complaint filed Nov. 3 in Washington County District Court:

Oak Park Heights police were called to the St. Croix Valley Alternative Learning Center on the report of a student smelling of marijuana.

When confronted by the principal and police, Tomasko denied being in possession of drugs. But when he emptied his pockets, police allegedly found a set of brass knuckles.

Under Minnesota state law, possessing, manufacturing or transfering brass knuckles is a misdemeanor offense, But on school property it becomes a felony.

Tomasko told authorities he knew he should not have the weapon. He also admitted to smoking marijuana earlier in the day.

Tomasko was not charged with a drug offense.

If convicted of the charge against him, Tomasko faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
