A Dozier man deemed a possible flight risk is facing a nearly $500,000 bond after he allegedly purchased more than $500 in goods using a stolen credit card.

Sgt. Jody Scott with the Andalusia Police Department said Timothy Ray Jordan, 32, was jailed Tuesday for the March 15 incident.

“That day, Mr. Jordan obtained a credit card that was not his and he was not authorized to use and used it at Wal-Mart, where he purchased $477 of merchandise, and then used it for two fuel purchases at the Murphy station,” Scott said.

Scott said he was able to obtain video evidence of the transactions; however, when faced with the evidence, Jordan refused to cooperate with law enforcement.

Jordan was booked into the Covington County Jail under a $450,000 bond on three counts of fraudulent use of a credit card.

“The bond amount is high due to possible other pending charges from non-related cases by a different agency, and Judge (Trippy) McGuire felt like Mr. Jordan might be a possible flight risk,” Scott said.
