According to police reports, three children between 7-10 of age were playing in a wood line area near their residences on Cabana Drive when a man pulled up in a pick-up truck and got out the vehicle. The man grabbed a 10-year old girl by the arm and tried to pull her with him. One of the other children started to scream, the man released the girl’s arm and fled in the pick-up truck. Officers flooded the area, spoke to residents but did not find anyone who witnessed the incident.
Based on varying information collected from the children, police officers were dispersed into the the area in an attempt to locate a newer model 4-door Chevy Pickup, charcoal gray in color, with large tires and a possible lift kit, dark tinted windows, an eagle sticker on the upper driver side corner of the windshield, and red writing or lettering on the back window of the pickup. The man was described as an older white male, possibly 50s or 60s, gray hair which was thinning or balding, and last seen wearing a gray t-shirt and dark blue jeans. The man was alone in the vehicle.

Gatt Ware, 40, saw a man sitting on his neighbor’s front porch drinking a coke. He did not recognize the man as someone that lived at the residence. Shortly after that, he saw the man inside of the residence. He noticed the back window of his neighbor’s house was raised and the screen was damaged laying on the ground. He then saw a man exiting out the back door with socks on his hands carrying some sort of audio/video cord.
He confronted the man as he exited the house in an effort to detain him for police, but the man took off running and jumped the fence.
Police converged on the area and it turned into a game of hide and seek. Police would spot the man, he would run, duck down temporarily, and take off running again.
The suspect was caught by Officer Mike Dillon in the area of Bonnie Court. The man, identified as Delanere Lebarron Jordan, had property taken from inside of the residence in his possession.
Delanere Lebarron Jordan was taken in custody and charged with aggravated burglary and evading. His bond was set at $26,000.
