Student charged with weapon possession on school property

Daily Staff Report

Shenandoah County deputies charged a Central High School student on Feb. 6 with possession of a weapon on school property.

Shenandoah County deputy Darcy Dellinger said a school administrator found a knife in the backpack of Dorothy Jean Youtzy, 18, of 223 Lakeview Drive, Woodstock, on Jan. 14. The knife's blade exceeded the legal limit of 3 inches, Dellinger said.

Youtzy came to the attention of the administrator after someone called the Sheriff's Office to report two students smoking on school property at about 8:40 a.m., Dellinger said.

Youtzy was served with an arrest warrant last week and an appearance in Shenandoah County General District Court is scheduled for 9 a.m. Feb. 22.
