Connelly Springs Man Arrested on Felony Meth Charges

45-year-old Gary Daniel Walker, Jr. of Edwards Circle in Connelly Springs has been arrested by Burke County Sheriff’s Officers on felony counts of possession of methamphetamine and possession with intent to manufacture, sell, or deliver meth.

Events leading to his arrest began on November 17 when a Burke County Deputy stopped a 2000 Chevrolet Impala on U.S. Highway 70 for a traffic infraction. The driver was identified as Gary Daniel Walker, Jr., who is on active probation.

Walker told the Deputy that he had a loaded shotgun in the trunk of his vehicle. A search of the vehicle reportedly yielded a loaded Silver Eagle RZ17 Tactical 12-gauge shotgun, two plastic bags containing methamphetamine, and drug paraphernalia.

Walker was taken into custody and placed in the Burke County Jail under a $10,000 secured bond. He was scheduled to appear in District Court last Friday (November 18). Another District Court date was scheduled for January 9 with a Superior Court date coming up on February 20.
