BPD meth arrest

A Lexington man was arrested early Wednesday morning for possession and sale of meth. 

According to a Bloomington Police report, around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, Bloomington police observed a car parked near a closed business in the 1600 block of Morrissey Drive.

While one of the officers was conducting a business check at a gas station, the other officer observed an occupant of the car walking toward the same gas station, the report stated. 

The officer conducting the check was able to identify the occupant and arrested the unidentified person for two active misdemeanor McLean County warrants. 

According to the report, the officer observing the parked car spoke with the other passengers and identified one of them as Jordan Reiss, 29, of Lexington. 

It is unclear how many passengers were in the car. 

Reiss also had an active McLean County warrant. As Reiss was being arrested, the officers searched him and found illegal drugs, metal knuckles and drug paraphernalia on him, the report stated. 

Officers also located a large number of illegal drugs and drug sale and packaging material in his backpack, according to the report. 

Reiss was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance, manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance and unlawful use of a weapon, the report stated.

No other information is available regarding these arrests.
