WORTHINGTON - An Iowa man was arrested Monday following a welfare check.

Daniel Riley, 38, of Hartley, Iowa, is charged with felony fifth-degree possession, not a small amount, in Nobles County District Court.

The charge stems from a requested welfare check at a residence in Worthington after kids had been absent from school for several days.

Upon officers’ arrival, Riley was the only individual at the residence, which he said was his sister’s. Officers observed a green leafy substance on a lamp stand that was presumed to be marijuana. After further searching the residence and Riley’s duffle bag with his permission, officers located several baggies of a white powdery substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine.

A review of Riley’s record shows that in 2011 he was convicted of felony possession of a controlled substance (third or subsequent offense) in Osceola County, Iowa.

Riley’s bail was set at $2,500 with conditions and $15,000 without. As of late Friday morning, he was still being held at the Nobles County Jail.

Riley’s initial appearance in Nobles County District Court is scheduled for Nov. 17.
