Luke Jerozal, 33, of Jefferson City, was charged Friday with two felonies and two misdemeanors after an officer allegedly caught him with methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and brass knuckles before he was transported to jail, where he was found to be in possession of more methamphetamine.

According to the probable cause statement, Jerozal was allegedly seen during the early morning hours of March 15 shining a flashlight behind area businesses. An officer discovered he was the subject of an active arrest warrant. The arresting officer reported a pipe and small bag of methamphetamine were located in his jacket, along with a set of brass knuckles. Within the jail, he was found to have additional methamphetamine hidden in the waistband of his pants.

Jerozal was charged with class D felonies for possessing a controlled substance, once in public and again inside the jail. Possessing the brass knuckles and pipe resulted in a class A and class D misdemeanors, respectively.
