man charged with taking neighbors’ cards

Be careful who you allow inside your house. Two residents of Mount Hope Church Road in southern Rowan County got quite a shock ó and lesson ó recently.
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office says Daniel Lynn Jordan, 24, stole credit and debit cards from three of his south Rowan neighbors and then used them to try to buy goods in Concord and Salisbury.
At least two banks called the owners of the stolen cards when they saw unusual activity, and Concord police officers first arrested Jordan, of 4240 Mount Hope Church Road, on five counts of financial card fraud, Rowan Sheriff’s Capt. John Sifford said this week.
Rowan sheriff’s investigators have since added six counts of financial card fraud as well as charges of second-degree burglary, felony larceny, attempted breaking-and-entering of a vehicle and possession of drug paraphernalia. He’s being held in the Cabarrus County Jail under $111,000 bond.
Sifford said the case shows you should be careful about who comes in your house, even if you think you know them.
Rowan investigators’ reports say Jordan:
– Broke into Dean Avant’s house at 4270 Mount Hope Church Road on Feb. 6. It’s not clear exactly what he took in that case.
– Went to Sue Denney’s home at 4260 Mount Hope Church Road three days later. Denney told Deputy Jeremy Huffman that Jordan came to visit his daughter, who was staying at Denney’s.
The next day, Feb. 10, Wachovia bank called Denney questioning the use of one of her cards at the BP station in Rockwell. Then she realized she was missing debit and credit cards.
– Came to Jerry Earnhardt’s home at 4065 Mount Hope Church Road on Feb. 13, offering to sell him a gun.
Earnhardt told Deputy Huffman later that he bought the gun, but he didn’t realize he was missing his checkbook and two credit cards. Then, Earnhardt’s bank called with questions about someone trying to use his credit card in Concord.
Sifford said the investigation is continuing.
