LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

The Laurel Narcotics Division arrested two men March 27 for possession of narcotics. 

Jason Jordan, 37, was arrested at a residence on South 7th Avenue in Laurel.

Officers recovered over 17-grams of crack cocaine and cash from Jordan's possession.

Officials said the street value is estimated to be up to $2,500.

Jordan is charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

His bond was set Monday in Laurel Municipal Court at $20,000, but it was denied because Jordan was already out on bond for conspiracy to commit a crime, a charge that occurred back in November of 2014.

Officers from the task force also arrested 47-year-old David Perry on March 27. 

Perry was arrested on General Pershing Street after officers found approximately 25-hits of heroin, 71 oxycodone pills and almost $6,000 in cash.

Perry is charged with possession of heroin with intent to distribute within 1,500 feet of a school and possession of a schedule two narcotic with intent to distribute within 1,500 feet of a school.

Perry's bond was set today in Laurel Municipal Court at $70,000.
