Agents targeted the location during an investigation in the sale of crack cocaine. Two warrants were obtained for Ernest Jordan, 36, of Loris, who was arrested Feb. 1 by Loris police during a smaller drug bust. During the raid two weeks ago, officers found just over an ounce of marijuana and $2,660 in cash.

Horry County Police Narcotics and Vice Unit agents were assisted by the US Marshals, HCPD SWAT, Loris police, 15th Judicial Circuit DEU and SLED.

Jordan was booked for less than a day and released on $15,550 bond.

Jordan was jailed for Monday’s raid Wednesday morning at 9:10 a.m. His bail was set at $15,000 and, at the time of this posting, he remains in jail.
