Carnival Worker Gets Three Years In Prison For Drug Possession
John Whitfield Junior

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A Texas carnival worker who received a shipment of drugs while working at the Sioux Empire Fair is going to prison.

55-year-old John Whitfield Jr. was sentenced to three years in prison Tuesday for possession of a controlled substance.

Prosecutors said Whitfield had another carnival worker go to a Sioux Falls hotel in August to pick up a shipment of crack cocaine that was hidden inside a doll.

The same type of doll was found in Whitfield's truck at the fairgrounds along with drug paraphernalia with cocaine residue.
