A Waukee man was arrested on a Dallas County warrant Wednesday afternoon for his alleged fifth violation of probation in connection with a May 2018 conviction for third-degree burglary.
Jordan Lee Graham, 26, of 105 10th St., Waukee, was charged with violation of probation.
According to court records, the arrest warrant was ordered after Graham failed to report Feb. 4 to the Fort Des Moines Community Corrections Complex, where he was to serve time for a prior violation of probation.
According to court records, Graham indicated in a Feb. 4 email to his probation officer that “he was in the hospital and was unable to report” to Fort Des Moines. The probation officer asked Graham to provide “the name of the hospital and any documentation pertaining to services provided,” but Graham repeatedly failed to “verify the name of the hospital” or “provide documentation pertaining to his care.”
The probation further observed that Graham “has been given multiple chances to make positive changes in his life but continues to show through his behavior he is not a good
candidate for probation at this time.”
Graham is held without bond in the Dallas County Jail. He is scheduled for an initial appearance May 8 in Dallas County District Court.
Graham was convicted of third-degree burglary in connection with an October 2017 incident in which he entered a cupcake bakery in West Des Moines and stole a Galaxy tablet. His five-year prison sentence was suspended, and he was placed on three years’ probation.
Graham was convicted of violating the terms of his probation in May 2018, August 2018, April 2019 and November 2019.
