Pilesgrove Township, N.J. - The New Jersey State Police have arrested Shadeed Jordan, 30, of Seabrook, N.J. after troopers linked him to several burglaries, thefts and forgeries in multiple South Jersey counties.
On Sunday, January 7, troopers from Woodstown Station were dispatched to a residential burglary on Lincoln Road in Pilesgrove Township, Salem County. Troopers determined that the suspect made a forced entry through the front door of the home and stole several gift and debit cards. During the investigation, troopers collected evidence near the residence, including video surveillance of the suspect vehicle, a GMC Envoy.
After a two-week investigation, troopers, working with local area law enforcement, discovered that a GMC Envoy was seen leaving the driveway of a residence that was burglarized in Elk Township, Gloucester County on Wednesday, January 10. Through various investigative means, detectives identified Shadeed Jordan as the suspect who also had a GMC Yukon registered to him in New Jersey. In addition, troopers identified several businesses in Gloucester, Camden, Salem, and Cumberland Counties where the suspect used the stolen gift and debit cards. He was also captured on video surveillance at one of the businesses.
On Monday, January 22, Woodstown Station troopers, Troop “A” Criminal Investigations Office, and the New Jersey State Police Fugitive Unit located and arrested Jordan at his place of employment in Mount Ephraim, N.J. At the time of arrest, Jordan’s clothing matched what he was observed wearing in a surveillance video where he was captured using stolen cards.
Shadeed Jordan was charged with burglary, theft, theft of a credit card, trespassing, and criminal mischief. He was also charged with forgery and use of a stolen credit card in several jurisdictions in Gloucester, Camden, Salem, and Cumberland Counties as well as burglary charges in Elk Township and in the New Jersey State Police Bridgeton Station patrol area. He was lodged at Salem County Jail where he is awaiting a detention hearing.
After Jordan’s arrest, troopers and detectives executed a search warrant on his GMC Envoy and seized a semi-automatic handgun as well as stolen items from a burglary in Pittsgrove Township. Jordan has additional charges pending for unlawful possession of a weapon, certain persons not to possess a weapon, burglary, and theft.
Charges are mere accusations, and the accused is considered innocent until proven guilty.
