Worthington man arrested for possession of meth

Timothy Stanley Jr. made his first appearance in court on Thursday.


WORTHINGTON — Timothy Herman Stanley Jr., 37, of Worthington, made his initial appearance in Nobles County Fifth Judicial Court on Thursday afternoon on four felony drug-related charges.

Stanley is charged with four counts of fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance while having a prior drug conviction. On each count, he faces a maximum five years imprisonment and/or a $10,000 fine.

According to the criminal complaint, Stanley was apprehended on an active warrant on Aug. 11, in the parking lot of a local business. Upon a search of the vehicle in which Stanley was found, law enforcement officers reportedly discovered a large plastic bag containing what appeared to be Stanley’s belongings. A passenger in the van allegedly confirmed the items belonged to Stanley.

Included in the bag were four glass pipes with white residue, a plastic baggie containing a white crystal-like substance, a box with one Q-Tip and a small plastic capsule — all of which reportedly field-tested positive for methamphetamine.

Stanley was previously convicted of fifth degree possession of a controlled substance in June 2017.
