Sex offender arrested for living close to park

ENID, Okla. — Enid Police Department officers arrested a 29-year-old sex offender Thursday for living too close to a park.

Officers arrested Anthony David Jordan at 4201 S. La Mesa No. F5.

Jordan is a sex offender and is registered at 2702 E. Wheat Capital, according to an EPD release. Police received information Jordan actually was living at the La Chateau Apartment complex.

Jordan had not registered the address with the department. The apartment complex is within a 2,000 foot radius of La Mesa Park, therefore sex offenders are prohibited from living there.

Officers made contact with Jordan at the apartment Thursday morning and he was arrested on complaints of failure to register as a sex offender and living within a 2,000 foot radius of a park.

Jordan’s roommate confirmed Jordan had been living at the apartment for about six months.

La Chateau Apartment complex had no knowledge of a sex offender living there, police said.

Jordan was convicted of lewd or indecent proposals/acts to a child in Enid Aug. 14, 2008. He is being held at Garfield County Detention Facility without bond.
