NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A Sumner County inmate was captured after stealing two vehicles to escape from Trustee Status at the County Animal Control Thursday.

Sumner County Sheriff's Office officials say Casey W. Jordan first stole a 1995 Black Chevrolet Suburban. The vehicle has a TN Tag with the number U9207A and a large sticker on the back that reads "I Wanna Bang."

The owner of the Suburban reported it stolen at the same time officials learned Jordan was missing. The owner also said the vehicle did not have much fuel in it.

The SUV was recovered. Jordan allegedly stole a second vehicle - a truck - from South Broadway in Portland.

Officials believe Jordan may be headed to the Ashland City area or the Bent Creek Ct. area of Hendersonville or an unknown location in Nashville.

The truck was quickly recovered and Jordan was arrested.

Jordan was serving a sentence for violation of probation. The original charges for that were theft over $1,000 and burglary.
