A Woodbury teenager who was convicted of was recently sentenced to two years of probation for possessing dangerous weapons on school property.
Blake Andrew Tomasko, 19, was questioned by police in October 2011 at the St. Croix Valley Alternative Learning Center after officers responded to a report of a student who smelled like marijuana, according to the criminal complaint.
When confronted by the principal and police, Tomasko denied being in possession of drugs, the complaint says, but when he emptied his pockets, officers found a set of brass knuckles.
Under Minnesota state law, possessing, manufacturing or transferring 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, according to the complaint, and he also admitted to smoking marijuana earlier in the day.
He was not charged with a drug offense.
