For the second straight week, investigators with the Wise County Sheriff’s Office seized a sizable amount of methamphetamines from a residence in Newark, landing another blow on drug trafficking in the area.

On Thursday, Jan. 24, officers raided the home of Jackie G. Minshew, 60, in the 200 block of County Road 4874 where they discovered 6 ounces of meth and $7,000 in cash.

One week later, evidence led WCSO investigators to the residence of Danny W. Worley, 47, located in the 100 block of Farm Road 718 in Newark.

Using a search warrant, they gained access to the home and seized 4.25 ounces of meth and a large amount of packaging paraphernalia commonly used to distribute narcotics.

Worley was arrested and booked into the Wise County Jail on charges of possession of a controlled substance between 4 and 400 grams.

His bond was set at $30,000 by Justice of the Peace Terri Johnson, and he remained in jail as of Friday afternoon.

Worley was arrested in June 2010 by Newark Police Department for theft, and by the Sheriff’s Office in December 2011 for an aggravated robbery in which he, Minshew and two others allegedly robbed a woman at a hotel room in Northlake.
