Vail Man Faces Felony Drug Charges

A Vail man faces felony drug charges after narcotics were found on his person during an arrest. On Tuesday, July 4, 25-five-year-old Jordan Lee Valencia was taken into custody by the Carroll Police Department at 801 Plaza Dr. on a probation violation warrant. Five separate bags were located containing a substance believed to be methamphetamine. Four of the bags contained a similar amount of the drug, but the fifth bag weighed much more than the others. Dozens of empty bags were also found in his possession. The suspected narcotics were sent to the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) for testing. On Aug. 24, results came back positive for methamphetamine. In addition to the probation violation, Valencia is now accused of a controlled substance violation, a class C felony, which is punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment and $10,000 in fines. A preliminary hearing for Valencia is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 14 at the Carroll County Courthouse.
