A Salisbury man has been charged with stealing $3,100 from his grandmother’s savings account on 13 different occasions. This is not the first time he has been charged with stealing from his grandmother.

Daniel Lynn Jordan, 32, of the 4200 block of Mount Hope Church Road, is charged with 13 counts of felony obtaining property by false pretenses, felony identity theft and felony possession with intent to sell and deliver a counterfeit controlled substance. He also has outstanding warrants for felony habitual felon and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Vicki Basinger told authorities she believed her nephew, Daniel Jordan, had taken her mother’s money when he lived with her at her Mount Hope Church Road home. Basinger said representatives from F&M Bank contacted her about fraudulent withdrawals from the account of Doris Miller Basinger.

Authorities said Jordan was able to transfer money from his grandmother’s account to a Google Wallet card he had. The card can be used to withdraw money from certain ATMs and can be used like a debit MasterCard.

Detectives received information Thursday that Jordan was walking around the downtown Salisbury area. Investigators approached Jordan, who admitted taking the money, they said. He also told detectives he had “fake heroin” on him.

In January 2011, Jordan was charged with stealing money from his grandmother’s Christmas cards.

He remains in the jail under a total $38,000 secured bond.

Jordan was convicted of larceny after breaking and entering, driving while impaired, credit card theft, manufacturing a controlled substance, larceny of a firearm, possession of firearm by felon, financial card fraud, second-degree burglary, obtaining property by false pretenses and manslaughter.
