Utilizing Snapchat to sell illegal drugs
Aaron Jordon of Imperial, Missouri, appeared before United States District Court Judge Rodney W. Sippel on today’s date. Jordon was sentenced to 72 months in federal prison. Jordon previously pleaded guilty to being a convicted felon in possession of multiple firearms in September 2021.
According to the plea agreement, in December 2019, investigators received information that an individual was distributing narcotics, specifically marijuana, LSD, and “dabs” or butane honey oil (BHO) in the Jefferson County area utilizing a Snapchat account. Investigators subsequently identified the user of the account as Aaron Jordon.
Investigators sought and obtained a lawful search warrant on December 18, 2019. On December 26, 2019, they initiated surveillance on the residence and detained Jordon shortly after he left the residence, conducting a traffic stop of his vehicle. They located a black Taurus .38 special revolver in the center console, as well as suspected narcotics.
Investigators accompanied by Jordon responded back to the residence to complete the search warrant. Additional suspected narcotics and seven firearms were located and seized. Jordon was previously convicted of an offense that prohibited his possession of any firearms.
The above case was investigated by the Jefferson County Municipal Enforcement Group (JCMEG) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.Arrests BHO Drug Trafficking LSD Marijuana New Trends Snapchat Social Media Weapons Involved
