A man wearing a ski mask and carrying an object in his hand that a motorist thought was a gun triggered a lock down this morning at Stillwater Area High School, police said.

Turned out, the man was carrying a cup of coffee, said Oak Park Heights Police Chief Brian DeRosier.

The school went into lock down mode about 8:15 a.m. after the motorist spotted the man and told police that he had gone into a wooded area on the south side of the campus near Hwy. 5 and 53rd Street. Police from Oak Park Heights and the Washington County Sheriff's Office immediately set up a perimeter around the school and brought in a K-9 unit to search for the man, DeRosier said.

"We were helped that with all that fresh snow," he said. "We didn't see any tracks in the woods and in the ditches along the highway."

An off-duty Stillwater police officer on his way to work around 9 a.m. said he saw a man "matching a description walking along the road carrying a cup of coffee," DeRoiser said.

At that point, police called off the search and the school returned to normal operations.

"It turns out it was a case of a mistaken article," DeRoiser said. "

I'm sick of ski-masks always being associated with criminals. I'll be biking to class in my heavy camo jacket and a black balaclava and I walk into the building, and every now and then someone gives me a frightened look. I'm like "...what? It's fucking cold outside"

I gave up on wearing ski masks long ago. :hs:
