A Madison man remains out of jail on a $5,000 cash bond after Madison police arrested him on drug charges last week following two controlled buys through confidential informants.

Jordan Rand Chandler, 20, appeared in Jefferson Circuit Court on Monday afternoon on felony charges of dealing cocaine and possession of cocaine after bonding out of jail on Christmas Day.

Chandler was already out on bond after being arrested earlier this month on unrelated burglary and theft charges for breaking into Shawe Memorial Junior and Senior High School with two other men.

Prosecutors filed enhanced charges against Chandler on Monday morning after learning that he allegedly sold drugs to the informant while a child younger than 18 years of age was present.

According to the probable cause affidavit, police were able to set up two controlled buys with Chandler on Wednesday in the downtown area.

Police were able to continue surveillance on Chandler after the first controlled buy and observed him making a purchase at Walmart with documented currency used during the transaction with the confidential informant.

Following a second controlled buy, Chandler was stopped by police. Jefferson County Sheriff's Department K9 partner Meko assisted in a search of Chandler's vehicle. Officers found prescription pain pills and cocaine during the search. Officers also found other documented currency from the arranged deals with informants.

Special Judge William Vance said Chandler, if found guilty, could face up to 16 years in jail for the Level 3 felony charge of dealing cocaine and up to 18 months in jail for the Level 6 felony charge of possession of cocaine.

Because of the prior charges, Prosecutor Chad Lewis asked Vance to revoke Chandler's bail and immediately take him into custody. Lewis asked that a $100,000 bond be set because of the severity of the charges.

Vance said Chandler's bond of $5,000 cash was set for the original lower level felony drug charges for which police arrested him on Wednesday. Because of due process in the case, Vance allowed Chandler to remain out of jail on the present bond of $5,000 cash until another hearing can be set to determine whether Chandler's bond is appropriate in the case.
