ST. LOUIS – United States District Judge E. Richard Webber sentenced Jordan Perry to 60 months in prison today. The 32-year-old St. Louis County, Missouri resident pleaded guilty, in February, to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. 

On July 9, 2019, officers from the St. Louis County Police Department tried arresting Perry because he was wanted on several outstanding felony warrants. Perry fled and led officers first on a vehicle pursuit and then on a foot chase. While fleeing from police, Perry drove through a backyard causing an officer to take immediate action to avoid being struck. During the vehicle pursuit, Perry drove at high rates of speed and failed to stop at multiple stop signs. A tire on Perry’s vehicle eventually deflated, so Perry abandoned the vehicle and ran from police. Officers eventually caught and arrested Perry.

Officers saw on the passenger seat of Perry’s vehicle, a.22-caliber High Standard Double-Nine revolver and three bags containing cocaine base. During an inventory search of the vehicle, officers located a fourth clear bag containing a cocaine base and 91 rounds of .22-caliber ammunition.

Prior to July 9, 2019, Perry was a convicted of a felony.

The St. Louis County Police Department investigated this case. Assistant United States Attorney Jillian Anderson is handling the case.
