26-year-old Robert S Jordan was jailed this month on an outstanding warrant charging him with automobile burglary and felony theft after using his job as a tow truck driver for West Nashville Towing, a zone provider for MNPD, to steal from at least one vehicle that he was towing to impound on behalf of police. Officers stopped Isaiah Neah in April and called the zone wrecker to tow and impound the vehicle. When Neal bonded out of jail and retrieved his vehicle from impound, he realized a very expensive speaker box was missing from his vehicle, and he reported it to police, who reviewed video footage at the impound lot, and no one had approached the vehicle. A review of the body cam footage from the night of his arrest shows the speakers inside the vehicle. The Infotainment system of the vehicle shows it stopped between the start of the two and the impound lot for 18 minutes at the home of Robert Jordan, and the system shows the doors of the vehicle being opened during that period. West Nashville towing confirms Jordan is no longer an employee.
