Arrest of San Jose Men for Selling Narcotics on Dark Web

Two men suspected of selling narcotics on the dark web have been arrested in San Jose after a months-long investigation by the San Jose Police Department. The primary suspect, Joshua Jordan, 36, was found to be shipping illegal narcotics through the United States Postal Service. Evidence suggested that Jordan only accepted cryptocurrency as a form of payment for the drugs he sold on the dark web.

A second suspect, Jonathan Correll Jr., 36, was identified as conspiring with Jordan to traffic the narcotics. Both suspects were arrested in Santa Clara and San Jose, respectively. During the arrests, several hundred grams of narcotics including heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, Xanax, Cialis, morphine, psilocybin, and ecstasy were seized. Additionally, a semi-automatic handgun with an extended magazine, two other semi-automatic pistols, ammunition, and approximately $6,000 in cash were also confiscated.

The investigation involved multiple law enforcement agencies and units, including the San Jose Police Department Gun and Hazardous Offender Suppression Team, Santa Clara County Crime Strategies Unit, Santa Clara County REACT team, USPS Inspector, SJPD Gang Investigations Unit, and SJPD Financial Crimes Burglary Unit.

Jordan and Correll Jr. were booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail for illegal narcotics trafficking and possession of illegal firearms. Anyone with information related to the case is urged to contact Detective Epperson or Officer Esquivel at (408)-537-3835.
