Texas man's online marijuana sales ad backfires

KILLEEN, Texas — A 21-year-old central Texas man allegedly looking for trouble found it on Craigslist.

A Bell County grand jury had indicted McDaryon Lenier Jordan on a felony marijuana possession charge after he allegedly used the classified advertising website to market marijuana.

Bell County Assistant District Attorney Murff Bledsoe told the Killeen Daily Herald it was as if he were "advertising a used car."

A Nolanville police officer used the e-mail address in the ad to negotiate the purchase of a pound of pot and a meeting place. Police say they found 14.4 ounces of marijuana in a shoebox in Jordan's car.

Jordan was free on bond. No telephone number was listed for him.
