US Marshals capture Austin fugitive wanted for robbery
UPDATE: Officials with the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force say Jarryd Jordan was taken into custody after they received a tip.
Further details were not immediately available.
Jarryd Jordan, 31, is wanted for a violent aggravated robbery at a Northeast Austin apartment complex in October 2018.
"Jordan and another suspect approached four individuals who were in a car in the parking lot of an apartment complex," said Darren Sartin, Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal.
The other suspect had a handgun while Jordan had a shotgun.
"As they were about done, Jordan turns around and muzzle punches one of the victims with a shotgun and creates injury to the victim. Then both the suspects run off," said Sartin.
The other suspect was caught but Jordan is still on the run. U.S. Marshals believe he may be a suspect in other armed robberies around Austin.
"We believe that he's committing other crimes, we just may not know about those crimes yet. People like this don't just commit one crime then go away," said Sartin.
Jarryd Jordan is 6'4" and weighs 250 pounds. Investigators believe he is still in the Austin area.
"He's got other family and friends in this town. They're going to know where he is and they need to call us and let us know so we can get him in custody," said Sartin.
