The Assistant Principal for Bemidji Middle School is in custody awaiting charges of soliciting children to engage in sexual conduct. Officials accuse 34-year-old Brandon Bjerkness of contacting kids through Facebook, Snapchat and email accounts he had set up with a false identity. Bjerkness allegedly used the name “Brett Larson” and claimed to be a 13-year-old male attending school at Morgan Park in Duluth (a school which has been closed for several years). The Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office is asking parents to talk with their children and determine if they have had any contact with “Brett Larson” on any of these social media accounts. If so, they’re urged to contact the sheriff’s office at 218-333-9111 and ask to speak with and investigator.
