'Contact 911' message on package leads to arrest
ROBERTSVILLE (AP) — An eastern Missouri man is in custody after a package service driver noticed a message scrawled on a package he had just picked up: "Contact 911."
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 33-year-old James Jordan of Robertsville is charged with domestic assault, sodomy, felonious restraint, unlawful use of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child.
The driver called authorities Tuesday after seeing the note on a package retrieved at a home in the Robertsville area. Franklin County deputies arrived and as a woman was speaking to them Jordan allegedly closed the door and refused to cooperate.
Because Jordan had past assault arrests and suspecting he had a gun or guns, officers called a SWAT team. Jordan surrendered before the team arrived.
