Home invasion case goes to grand jury Sept. 11

By Walter Geiger Among a plethora of cases set for consideration by the Lamar County grand jury to be empaneled Sept. 11 is that of alleged home invader Christopher Jordan. Jordan, 31, faces multiple charges in connection with a home invasion May 23 at the Brent Road farm of Rick and Cathy Hacht. Jordan allegedly terrorized the couple and shot and killed their Golden Retriever Cotton whom they credit with saving their lives. The Hachts and a farm employee Albert McCullough fled when a shotgun Jordan allegedly stole from the home jammed after he shot the dog. The incident triggered a huge law enforcement response. Jordan was later arrested some distance away on Sappington Road by off duty Monroe deputies Mercer Bush and Donnie Keadle. Sheriff Brad White reported Jordan, who has a previous robbery conviction, spent some time in a mental facility but is currently back in the Lamar jail. He is charged with armed robbery, two counts aggravated assault, burglary, home invasion, aggravated cruelty to animals, terroristic threats and acts, theft by taking, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony.
