Fairmont Man Faces Felony Drug Charges in Martin County

A Fairmont man is facing felony drug charges after a large amount of methamphetamine was found at his home during an investigation by a local drug task force.


On Wednesday, 31 year old Jordan Byers was charged with six felony counts of drug possession and drug sales in Martin County District Court.


A criminal complaint says Byers sold a Minnesota River Drug Task Force Informant more than an ounce of Methamphetamine total, during two separate transactions in June and July.


Byers was arrested during a traffic stop near his Fairmont home last week, at which time he was found with more than an ounce of meth in his possession.


During a search of Byers’ home, authorities discovered a pound of meth, more than a half pound of marijuana, a small amount of cocaine and more than an ounce of marijuana wax in his bedroom.


A scale and multiple styles of baggies were also found according to the complaint.


Byers is currently being held in the Martin County Jail.
