Christmas card money too tempting
A Salisbury man remains in the Rowan County jail facing misdemeanor larceny charges after he stole money from his grandmother’s Christmas cards, authorities say.
Daniel Lynn Jordan, 28, of 4250 Mount Hope Church Road, was charged on Wednesday after his grandmother, Doris Miller Basinger, 79, said she’d prepared Christmas cards for family and not all of the money she’d given was received.
Jordan admitted he took the money, said Sheriff’s Capt. John Sifford.
A total of $115 was taken from the cards.
Jordan is being held on a $1,000 bond. His court appearance is set for Feb. 14. He remains in the Rowan County Detention Center.
