Cantonment Man, One Other, Arrested When ECSO Raids ‘Drug House’

June 8, 2024

A Cantonment man was one of two people charged after the Escambia County Sheriff’s office closed an alleged “drug house” in the 2300 block of West Blount Street.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit and the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team conducted a search warrant at the home.

ECSO said during the search, deputies located two firearms, 170 grams of cocaine, 158 grams of methamphetamine, 70.5 grams of MDMA, 4.5 grams of fentanyl, 1,849 grams of spice, 511 grams of marijuana, and over $700.

Donte Carlos Conner of Cantonment (pictured below), 43, was charged with trafficking cocaine, trafficking in fentanyl, trafficking methamphetamine, trafficking in synthetic drugs, obstructing justice, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.

Gerry Damon Worthey of Pensacola (pictured left), 51, was charged with trafficking cocaine, trafficking in fentanyl, trafficking methamphetamine, trafficking in synthetic drugs, obstructing justice, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both remained jailed without bond.

    I think they are both “Worthey” of long prison sentences.

    I love the labels on the picture. Bein an LEO is stressful, they need to have a little fun sometimes.

    Supply and demand. NW Florida is riddled with street drugs of all types… Recorded the most Opiod/Fentanyl deaths per capita in the state in recent reporting’s.

    The ECSO is earning their pay! Outstanding job gentleman, ya’ll are on a roll keep shut em down. Now all we need is for the courts to send em away for a long time. It’s nice to live in an area & have a sheriff’s department that’s willing to do what the community needs done. These people are causing untold grief to families & they don’t care. They have no desire to work for living & they have no place in society. It’s up to the prosecutors & judges to their job now. We hear about these arrests but we seldom hear the follow up. Did the prosecutor allow em to plea down the charges? Did the judge slap on the wrist or throw the book at em? There’s no gratitude or incentive to LE when a prosecutor offers a plea deal instead of earning their pay. What these people are peddling is killing people, they need to be in jail. If they don’t want to give up who their supplier is go for the maximum sentence without parole.
