Girard Street man linked to stolen car, loaded handgun and cellphone

A Girard Street man was arrested by Buffalo police about 11 p.m. Saturday when he pulled in to a gas station in the 2700 block of Bailey Avenue in a car allegedly stolen from a Buffalo man.

Jordan Hairston, 23, was charged with felony counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, third-degree grand larceny, fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and third-degree unauthorized used of a car.

The suspect, police said, left the keys in the car when he saw police coming toward him and tried to escape.

Hairston remained in custody in Erie County Holding Center Sunday night, pending Buffalo City Court proceedings.
