DIXON – An 18-year-old Dixon man was arrested Monday after, police say, he twice sold drugs to a police informant.

Police say that Jordan A. McThenia, 18, sold marijuana and Molly – a very pure form of MDMA, with similar effects to ecstasy – to an informant in July and August.

McThenia was arrested at his apartment in the 1500 block of Lowell Park Road just after 2 p.m. and charged with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a church, unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, unlawful delivery of cannabis between 10 and 30 grams, and unlawful possession of marijuana between 10 and 30 grams.

Police say that McThenia’s arrest was part of an ongoing investigation into the sale of illegal drugs in the Dixon area, and that more arrests are pending.

McThenia was taken to Lee County Jail. His bond had not yet been set.
