A nighttime bike ride turned into possibly 10 years in federal prison for a convicted felon.
What started as a ‘shots fired’ call in mid-July near Louisiana and Zuni led police to 26-year-old Earl Jordan just a block away.
Jordan was on a bike when police stopped him for not having a light on the bike.
He wouldn’t listen to officers telling him to step off the bike and put his hands behind his back, acting very fidgety.
When an officer told Jordan not to run, he did; but Jordan gave up and pitifully tried to hide behind a pickup truck nearby. Police also say he tossed a backpack underneath the truck that had a very expensive speaker and a gun in it.
Jordan is a convicted felon out of California for burglary. Now the case has gone federal, along with another case form last year involving a stolen vehicle and another gun.
Court records show Jordan has a lengthy criminal history out of New Mexico over just two years, and that he’s been wanted as an out of state fugitive five times.
