WORTH COUNTY – An armed, convicted meth criminal from Plymouth and his two pals were caught in Worth county after a vigilant deputy pulled them over for an obscured registration sticker.

On February 22, 2019 at approximately 11:41 PM, a deputy with the Worth County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop on a Silver 1998 Chevrolet C1500 that had recently been in the ditch and for having snow covering the registration sticker/county on the license plate.

Scott Shafer, age 46 of Plymouth, was identified as the driver of the vehicle. Danielle Ness, age 34 of Mason City, and 54-year-old Myron Demaray of Northwood, were identified as passengers in the vehicle.  It was soon learned that Ness had a valid warrant out of Cerro Gordo County.

While the deputy was taking Ness into custody, he observed a pipe used for smoking methamphetamine in plain view in the center console. A search of the occupant’s person and vehicle was then conducted. A bong, multiple pipes used for smoking methamphetamine, methamphetamine, several prescription pills, as well as a 9mm Smith and Wesson handgun with a fully loaded magazine were recovered.

As a result of the stop:

Ness was taken into custody for her outstanding warrant and for Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (Simple Misdemeanor).

Demaray was taken into custody for Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (Simple Misdemeanor) and Possession of a Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine)(Class D Felony).

Shafer – who has numerous meth arrests and other crimes on his criminal record – was taken into custody for Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (Simple Misdemeanor), Possession of a Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine)(Class D Felony), 2 counts of Unlawful Possession of Prescription Meds (Serious Misdemeanor), and Possession of a Firearm by a Felon (Class D Felony).

Shafer and Demaray remain in Worth county jail, while Ness is in custody in Cerro Gordo county.
