Purdle and Swift

BLOOMINGTON — Two Bloomington residents face drug charges after the execution of a search warrant Thursday.

Calvin Purdle, 30, was charged with manufacturing and delivery of drugs and manufacturing and delivery of cocaine. Blanche Swift, 50, was charged with six counts of manufacturing and delivery of drugs.

Police said the Bloomington police SWAT team executed a search warrant in the 500 block of West Washington Street for the investigation of drug sales. During the search, a third man whose name was not released fled the residence and was arrested on a charge of resisting and obstructing a police officer and an unrelated active McLean County felony warrant.

Purdle and Swift remain in McLean County jail. Purdle must post $2,535; Swift, $5,035.

Both are due in court Oct. 25.
