Uptown: Another Narc Raid Puts Veteran Dealer Behind Bars, Cops Say

Uptown residents who are sick of narcotics dealing in their neighborhood jumped for joy on Tuesday after a swarm of masked cops executed a narcotics search warrant in the 4400 block of North Magnolia.

While the latest raid didn’t net a huge stash of drugs like a May 9 operation, Tuesday’s raid did put a repeat drug dealer behind bars.

Cops went to the building at 4454 North Magnolia around 6:30 p.m., armed with a warrant to search 34-year-old Raphyll Jordan and his apartment.

They found 13 small bags of suspected crack cocaine worth $320, a digital scale, and other paraphernalia, according to police records.

That was good enough to get Jordan, who is still facing other narcotics charges from May 2016, jailed and held without bail.

Jordan has a number of narcotics convictions on his record: He was sentenced to six years for manufacture-delivery of heroin in 2003 and received probation for manufacture-delivery of cocaine in 1998.
