Drug suspect flagged down police, arrested on warrant


Police said a man who flagged down officers on patrol was arrested on a warrant and was found to have heroin hidden on his body.

Lawrence Stephen Jordan, 32, was arrested early this morning in the 1800 block of North Main Street. He is being held in the Montgomery County Jail on suspicion of aggravated burglary, illegal conveyance and drug possession, according to the Dayton police report.

Police said Jordan was standing in a parking lot when he flagged down a police cruiser. Oddly, when the officers pulled up and asked what was wrong, the suspect asked why they stopped, according to the report.

The officers soon learned Jordan was wanted by Kettering police for an alleged aggravated burglary.

Jordan denied having any contraband on him, but when he was searched a second time while being booked into jail, 14 grams of heroin were found stashed in his underpants, accoording to the report.
