Dave Spencer reported yesterday that a car was stolen with a 5-year-old child inside Tuesday in Owensboro. A suspect has now been identified and OPD needs our help locating the suspect. Do you know the whereabouts of Jordan Terry?

According to a press release that we received just moments ago, the Owensboro Police Department has identified the suspect involved in the kidnapping and two auto theft incidents that occurred on Tuesday, April 10th, 2018. The suspect was unable to operate the first of two vehicles because it had a manual transmission. The suspect was identified as Jordan Terry after forensic evidence gathered from the first vehicle linked Terry to the series of crimes.  Video surveillance of Jordan Terry obtained from local businesses prior to the incidents was also collected.

An Arrest Warrant for Jordan Terry has been issued for the charges of TBUT or Disp Auto - $500 or more but U/$10,000 (2 counts) and Kidnapping – Minor (1 count). Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Jordan Terry is asked to call OPD at 270-687-8888, or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 270-687-8484.
