Two Mary Esther residents have been arrested after an undercover investigation of several months by the Okaloosa County Multi-Agency Drug Task Force. Jason Allen Worley, age 21 (7-6-1983); and Elizabeth Ann Woods, also age 21 (3-9-1983), were taken into custody as the Drug Task Force executed a search warrant last night (Thursday night) at their 641 Shrewsbury Road residence.

            Several rocks of crack cocaine, scales with cocaine residue, and a small amount of marijuana were seized. Investigators believe Worley attempted to flush some of the crack cocaine down the toilet as lawmen arrived.

Worley was arrested on charges of Possession of Crack Cocaine with Intent to Distribute and Tampering with Evidence. Woods was arrested on Misdemeanor Possession of Marijuana.

In addition, both were arrested on charges of Child Neglect. Investigators say a three year old child was exposed to drug activity at the house.

Worley was booked into the Okaloosa County Jail in Crestview under a bond of $50,000; Wood's bond was set at $5,000.

The Drug Task Force includes members from the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and the Crestview Police Department.
