Woman On TBI's Most Wanted List Arrested

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The most recent addition to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's Top Ten Most Wanted list was captured in Nashville on Monday.

Tiffany Lynne Jordan-Johnson, age 32, was taken into custody without incident around 7:45 a.m. on Hillside Avenue.

Jordan-Johnson was charged with seven counts of illegal payments in connection with the placement of a child after police said she offered her newborn for adoption to seven different families before fleeing.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Jordan-Johnson of Madison agreed to let each of the families adopt her child after he or she was born between November 2012 and March 2013. She accepted funds from potential parents and adoption agencies for her rent and living expenses when she already was living in rent-free government subsidized housing. 

Officials said Jordan also forged lease documents and received money from potential parents and other agencies for rent expenses.

After her child was born in Dyer in April 2013, Jordan-Johnson, her baby, and the youngest of her six other children could not be found. The two children's location remains unknown, but her five other children were in the custody of her mother.

Jordan-Johnson was also charged with six counts of theft, two felony counts of forgery, and one count of attempted forgery. She is in jail on a $105,000 bond.

She had been added to the TBI's most wanted list on Friday.
