2 Charged In Drug Bust

Bath salts and cell phones are a bad combination.

Colandgous Gordan Jordan and Rebecca Lillie McCandless found that out first-hand Tuesday afternoon after sheriff's deputies went to 727 Ripley Island Road looking for Jordan on an outstanding arrest warrant.

Jordan "started to run" when deputies came in the back door of the house and ignored a command to stop, Deputy Chuck Humphreys said in a report.

"He slammed the door and ran through the house," the report said.

With the assistance of sheriff's department K-9 Apis, Jordan, 35, of 315 Chuckey Highway, was found in a closet "with clothes piled on top of him to conceal his location," the report said.

A search of the house turned up five plastic bags containing 1.3 grams of the synthetic drug known as bath salts, $124 in cash and a cell phone containing text messages and calls "to and from persons wanting to buy drugs," the report said.

Also found were two pipes "commonly used for smoking drugs" and several straws of a type "commonly used for snorting drugs," the report said.

While deputies were at the house, a call came in on the phone from a woman "who wanted to trade Klonopin for bath salts," the report said.

The caller was allegedly McCandless, 24, of 560 Rambo Road.

"She told me what she wanted to do and I said, 'Sure, come on over,' " Humphreys said.

When McCandless arrived, she was found to be in possession of two plastic bags containing a white powder she identified as crack cocaine, the report said.

After McCandless was arrested, she denied carrying any other drugs, a report said.

While McCandless was being booked into the Greene County Detention Center, two plastic bags containing crack cocaine were found in her bra, a report said.

In addition to the arrest warrant, Jordan was charged with possession of an analogue drug (bath salts), evading arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia.

McCandless was charged with solicitation to sell or deliver a Schedule III drug, possession of a Schedule II drug (crack cocaine) and introduction of drugs into a penal facility.

Bond for Jordan was set at $32,000. Bond for McCandless was set at $41,000.

Both have scheduled appearances today in General Sessions Court.
