FOREST CITY | A Forest City man was arrested Sept. 3 after meth and brass knuckles allegedly were found in his possession.

Andrew Knudtson, 21, is charged with felony methamphetamine possession with intent to deliver, as well as misdemeanor counts of carrying weapons and unlawful possession of a prescription drug.

A deputy with the Winnebago County Sheriff's Office made a traffic stop on Knudtson, who was on a motorcycle, at 3:50 p.m. on I Street in Forest City.

He had four small plastic bags in his possession, each containing about .4 of a gram of meth, according to the criminal complaint.

The deputy also found brass knuckles in a compartment on Knudtson's motorcycle, the complaint states.

Knudtson allegedly told the deputy the brass knuckles, which were attached to a set of keys, belonged to his daughter, and that he was keeping them for her because she's only a year old. 

Knudtson also admitted to having Methylphenidate in his possession without having a prescription for it.

He posted bond and was released from custody. He has a court appearance scheduled for Sept. 14.

Knudtson received a deferred judgment last month in Cerro Gordo County District Court for carrying weapons on school grounds.

Police say they recovered a .40-caliber handgun from his vehicle on the North Iowa Area Community College campus on Feb. 21.
