A lockdown at Stillwater High School this week was caused by alleged social media threats made by a woman who earlier tried to enter the school with a replica gun.

Breanna Stoltz, 20, of Stillwater is facing three charges in Washington County following the incident on Tuesday.

Oak Park Heights police officers were on duty at Stillwater Area High School when they were alerted to concerning text messages and Snapchat posts sent to a current student by Stoltz, a criminal complaint states.

The student was concerned the suspect was suicidal, and messages she sent read "im on Xans with a 12 gauge [sic]" and "I bought an AR."

This prompted a lockdown as Stoltz was still in the area, having earlier tried to gain entry to the school but was denied by security.

When police found her, they searched her backpack and found a BB gun that was a replica of a Glock pistol.

Stoltz admitted being on school property while said gun was in her backpack.

She has been charged with 5th degree assault (for making threats), possession of a dangerous weapon on school property, and disorderly contact.
