Warrant Issued For Courtroom No-Show

SNOW HILL — A man arrested in a Pocomoke City drug sting has a $250,000 warrant out for his arrest because he failed to appear for court Wednesday.

Minaster Fate Nixon Wright, 55, of Pocomoke, was among more than 40 people caught into a joint drug raid in July conducted by county law enforcement agencies. Wright was charged in that sting with marijuana possession and distribution, and with selling it within 1,000 feet of a school. He was detained July 26, and posted $75,000 bond Aug. 2.

When he did not show for his Sept. 7 arraignment in Worcester County Circuit Court, Judge Thomas Groton ordered a bench warrant for his arrest.

 Wright was the only no-show as four other men facing drug charges from the same sting did appear in court.
