Worthington man faces drug charges following gas station arrest

Entinger

WORTHINGTON — A Worthington man arrested Thursday is facing three drug-related charges in Nobles County District Court.

Terry Entinger, 41, has been charged with two counts of felony fifth-degree possession — not a small amount. He’s also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, a petty misdemeanor.

According to the criminal complaint, an officer encountered Entinger at a Worthington gas station and, due to outstanding investigations, arrested him on the basis of probable cause.

Four other individuals with whom the officer was acquainted through other previous drug-related crimes were discovered in the van. One was also arrested after the officer was informed of an outstanding warrant for their arrest.

The complaint continues that .44 grams, plus packaging, of methamphetamine was discovered on Entinger’s person. Two glass pipes that tested positive for methamphetamine were discovered near where he was seated in the van.

Entinger was convicted of fifth-degree controlled substance in Blue Earth County in 2013 and 2014.

Bail was set at $20,000 with conditions or $40,000 without.

Entinger’s initial appearance has been scheduled for Nov. 14 in Nobles County District Court.
