n David Hernandez, 25, of Willmar, and Jordan Craig Rue, 23, of Murdock, both made their first appearances Wednesday on third-degree drug sale charges for their roles in selling 0.9 grams of methamphetamine to a CEE-VI Drug Task Force informant in October.

Unconditional bail was set at $50,000 for both men. Each will make their next appearance on March 10.

According to the complaints, the informant met Hernandez and Rue on the northeast side of the city and that Hernandez refused to sell the informant meth unless the informant gave him money first. Rue then gave the informant a bag containing a white substance and took the informant’s money.

The informant identified both men by photo. The drugs tested positive as methamphetamine.
