Man Arrested on Outstanding Warrants Faces Drug Charges

Daniel Prince

Man found with fentanyl, marijuana, and meth while dressing out at the jail

Union Public Safety arrested a man with two active warrants, and now he faces several drug charges, in addition. Last Friday, PFC Jeff Wright was looking for 57-year-old Danny Ray Britten on the outstanding warrants of petit larceny and 2nd-degree assault and battery. Back in February, Britten is accused of taking a commercial laundry cart from 907 East Main Street and not returning it. Last month, Britten is accused of threatening to cut a man with a knife and then chasing the man with a machete around the parking lot of 221 East Main Street.

Wright was informed where Britten worked and what he was driving. Wright saw the vehicle in front of Jimmy’s Fresh Air Galaxy on East Main Street and stopped the vehicle. He found Britten in the back seat of the truck and arrested him on the warrants. Once at the jail being dressed out, one of the jailers found some plastic cellophane containing a small blue pill suspected to be fentanyl in one of Britten’s socks. He found a sock in Britten’s groin area that contained a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana. It weighed 15 grams. The sock also contained 8 grams of a clear crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine. It also had a glass pipe with drug residue from smoking in it. Additional charges were filed for possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, simple possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
