Mobile, Ala. (July 28, 2011) — Sheriff Sam Cochran announced today the arrest of one suspect involved in five (5) residential burglaries in the North Mobile County area.
On July 27, 2011, the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office received information, which lead investigators to respond to the residence of 12935 Mason Ferry Rd. in reference to a string of burglaries that had occurred in the North Mobile County area. The suspect, who resided at the residence has been identified as Wilton Randy Jordan (D.O.B. 10/19/62).
Investigators conducted a search of the residence and discovered a large amount of stolen items, which included jewelry, guns, laptop computers, and hunting equipment. Investigators were able to validate much of the stolen items based on several residential burglary complaints that were received in the month of July.
To date, investigators have recovered approximately $10,000.00 dollars worth of stolen merchandise and as stolen items are still being tracked down we expect that amount to rise.
Mr. Wilton Randy Jordan was arrested and transported to the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office Metro Jail on five (5) counts of burglary 3rd, which is a class C felony. Mr. Jordan is also suspected in at least 30 other burglaries in that area, additional charges are forthcoming as the investigation continues.
Approximately 9:10 p.m., while deputies were searching the area for the suspect vehicle, the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office received a second call in reference to a robbery that occurred at the intersection of Jeff Hamilton Rd and Grand Bay Wilmer Rd. The victim advised that a silver Chevy Trailer Blazer blocked his vehicle at the above location. The victim advised that a black male and a white male jumped out from the suspect vehicle armed with a hand gun and attempted to rob him. The victim was able to place his vehicle in reverse and flee the area. During the course of both robberies, the suspects were wearing bandannas around their face in an attempt to conceal their identity.
On July 24, 2011 at 12:24 a.m., deputies spotted the suspect vehicle on Two Mile Rd. and Cody Driskell Rd. and conducted a traffic stop. The vehicle was occupied by 2 white male subjects and one black male subject, who were identified as Robert Lee Smith DOB 1/4/80, Keith Allan Haynes DOB 1/1/91, and Harold Leslie Harris 12/18/84. All three suspects were still wearing the bandannas that were used in the robbery. Investigators responded to the location of the traffic stop and all three suspects were arrested and transported to the Mobile County Metro Jail. Robert Lee Smith was charged with one count of Robbery 1st, and the other two suspects ( Haynes and Harris) were both charged with two counts of Robbery 1st each.
The Mobile County Metro Jail is proud to announce the Graduation of Two Inmates, LUKE JASON CUSHMAN-COLE andTHERESA LEE TODD, who have earned their GED.
The GED program began in the Metro Barracks for the women in June 2009. The program was offered to 116 women in the first year and 161 in the second year. Although we had not been approved as a test site until recently, the women were given information and study guides about the GED program. It was the inmate’s responsibility once they were released to take the test.
In October 2010, the GED program began in Metro Jail for the juvenile males. In May of this year the program began for adult males and was approved as a test site for the GED Testing.
On June 15 & 16 two of our inmates successfully completed and passed the program to earn their GED. Many times this is the first step towards a positive future for an inmate.
The Chaplaincy Department of Metro Jail and Goodwill Easter Seals sponsor the GED Program. The best part of the program is that it is NO COST to the taxpayers.
