An Apple Valley man suspected of being a major drug dealer in Washington County was arrested in Woodbury earlier this month and now faces a felony drug charge.
Dmitry Anatolyevich Sorkin, 27, allegedly sold $1,500 worth of cocaine to a Washington County Narcotics Unit informant near the intersection of Valley Creek Road and Radio Drive on Dec. 12, according to the criminal complaint.
The informant purchased more than two ounces of the drug—and made plans to buy another four ounces later—following an investigation that led authorities to believe Sorkin was “distributing and selling large amounts of cocaine in the Washington County area,” the complaint says.
After the alleged deal, Sorkin drove away and officers conducted a traffic stop. The $1,500 in buy money was found in the center console, and the drugs tested positive for cocaine, according to the complaint.
Sorkin stands accused of first-degree drug sale of cocaine/meth within a 90-day period and faces up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
