WORTHINGTON - A Worthington man arrested Thursday is facing drug-related charges.

Stephen T. Hall, 23, has been charged with felony fifth-degree drug possession (not a small amount); felony fifth-degree drug sale; and driving after license revocation, a misdemeanor. A conviction of either felony offenses has a maximum sentence of five years imprisonment and/or a $10,000 fine.

The charges stem from a Feb. 22 traffic stop by a Worthington police officer in Worthington.

According to the formal complaint, the officer clocked Hall’s vehicle traveling around 3 a.m. at 53 miles per hour in a 45 mile per hour zone. Upon contact, the officer detected an odor he believed to be marijuana. The vehicle’s three occupants exited the vehicle, and the officer allegedly discovered more than 10 baggies of marijuana.

Hall said he would claim possession of the marijuana and was transported to the Nobles County Jail. During the post-arrest interview, Hall told law enforcement he would not have claimed possession had he known the amount of marijuana in the vehicle.

During the booking process, $1,341 cash was allegedly found on his person, which he claimed to have won earlier that evening at Grand Falls Casino in Larchwood, Iowa.

Hall’s bail was set at $1,000 with conditions or $10,000 without. His initial appearance is scheduled for Feb. 28 in Nobles County District Court.
