Drug arrest in the city of Jordan

On the afternoon of April 6, 2020, as part of an ongoing drug investigation, Jordan Police Department assisted the Southwest Metro Drug Task Force (SWMDTF) by conducting a traffic stop in the city of Jordan.

The suspect and driver of the vehicle was identified as Pedro Gil Garcia (57) of Jordan.  Garcia was placed under arrest and booked into the Scott County Jail for violating a No Contact Order and felony 1st degree sale and possession of 1.2 kilos of Methamphetamine. 

“During these challenging times, law enforcement is still actively pursuing criminals and I am grateful for the outstanding work by everyone involved in this case,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen.  “I am glad we were able to arrest this suspect and seize these deadly narcotics before they were distributed into our community.”

The mission of the SWMDTF is to provide a comprehensive and multi-jurisdictional effort to reduce drug trafficking and its harmful consequences and to provide effective drug awareness education through the coordination and resource sharing of its participating agencies within Scott County, Carver County, McLeod County, and a small portion of Hennepin County.
