A Huntington man was sentenced on a drug charge to 7 years in federal prison, United States attorney Mike Stuart announced. Stewart Longworth Jordan, III, 27, previously pleaded guilty to alleged possession with intent to sell 50 grams or more of methamphetamine after a significant amount of methamphetamine was intercepted by postal inspectors in the post in 2018.

“Mr. Jordon was peddling in the very poisons that have deeply harmed our communities and our families,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart. “We stopped him before he was able to distribute that poison in Huntington and beyond. Law enforcement okayed a critical role in protecting our community and families from more damage.”

On November 9, 2018, a US Postal Inspection Service inspector intercepted a package in the Huntington Post Office that had been shipped out of Nevada and found to contain more than two pounds of methamphetamine. Inspectors then sent the package to a Huntington home, and Jordan came to the house to retrieve the item. Jordan was arrested and admitted he wanted to sell the methamphetamine in court.

In early March 2020, Jordan pleaded guilty to one count of attempted possession with the intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine. A.S. Attorney Mike Stuart announced the outcome of the Jordan’s 16 June 2020 sentencing hearing.
