Williams arrested on drug charges

Saturday, December 11, 2010

GREENCASTLE -- A Greencastle man is in the Putnam County Jail after being arrested on drug charges.

Dale Cary Williams, 34, is being held without bond. He has been preliminarily charged with sale of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, sale of marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.

Putnam County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Doug Nally said Williams was arrested without incident outside the home of one of Williams' relatives in the 4300 block of U.S. 231 in Greencastle late Thursday. Williams was booked into jail shortly after midnight on Friday.

"We didn't find a lab or anything, it was just product," Nally said.

Police discovered drugs in Williams' car when they conducted a traffic stop, Nally said.

Nally said Williams will likely be arraigned on Monday. He also said more arrests connected to Williams' alleged criminal activity may be forthcoming.

"There is the potential for more arrests," he said. "We expect to hopefully have some more."

Williams was convicted on Aug. 28, 2008 of Class C felony trafficking with an inmate. He was sentenced to eight years with three executed and five on probation.

Under the terms of a plea agreement in that case, charges of possession of and dealing in controlled substances against Williams were dropped.

According to information at the Indiana Department of Correction website, Williams was released from prison on May 20.

In the past, Williams has also been charged with operating while intoxicated, driving while suspended, criminal mischief, operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated endangering a person, operating a motor vehicle with a controlled substance in the body, domestic battery, intimidation, residential entry, battery and criminal trespassing.

  • Maybe murder will be added to his record as soon as they let him out again.

  • Marijuana is a drug? If that is the case sage, rosemary, and thyme should all be illegal.

  • Well you really need to know both sides of the story! Everyone gets into fights just not all actually get charged! And what about all these sex offenders that are out on the streets and in wal mart where we take our children? Kary is harmless and is very missed already!

  • Oh let's make excuses for this guy. "he's harmless and missed." I'm sure his family does miss him, but get with the program people...he's accused of dealing a very dangerous and addictive drug in meth. Why didn't you step up and get him some help?

  • Trust me I tried and I will continue to try because that what real friends do! I'm not making excuses these drugs take over ur life...instead of just arresting these people for awhile then letting them back out maybe we should focus on rehabilitating them instead! So maybe we should ALL get with the program as a community!

  • As far as who ever is sticking up for Dale would u like to come explain to my 4 year old wonderful lil boy why selling and doing meth was more important than being a father? He is a woman beater and has been in and out of prison since he was 17! I have been on and of with him since I was 15 and if u knew the half of it u wouldnt be sticking up for him ! He is beyond gone he is institutionalized and will never change!

  • I dont know what happend to my last post , but like i said it takes more than talkin about your children to be a father! He has never done nothing for my lil boy and now he never will have a chance! 3 strikes your out and now he will sit in prison and have to relize he will never have the chance to be a father! Like I always say a real man puts his family first and has never done that! Hope it was worth it!
