They say Jordan sold drugs in Forest that eventually ended up in the hands of high schoolers in Bedford County and Lynchburg.

He and 15 others were arrested after an undercover operation police say lasted eight months.

Authorities are still looking for two more suspects- Timothy Robert Payne and Shanna Renee Hamlett- both of Lynchburg.
