TOWN AND COUNTRY, Mo. – A former officer with the Town and Country Police Department was charged with seven felonies and two misdemeanors in a child sex crimes investigation.

The Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has charged Jordan C. Fowle, 57, with seven counts of child molestation, one count of sodomy, and one count of sexual abuse.

Prosecutors filed charges on Jan. 16 and authorities have requested a warrant for Fowle’s arrest. Missouri court records did not indicate Saturday whether Fowle is behind bars.

The Town and Country Police Department confirmed via Facebook that Fowle was a former officer and is facing charges. The department adds it’s been in contact with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office “and has no reason at the present time to believe any alleged incidents occurred while Jordan Fowle was on duty, or otherwise acting in the official capacity of a Town and Country Police Officer.”

According to court documents obtained from FOX 2, Fowle is linked to several sex crimes between August 2012 and July 2023 with two victims.

Per court documents, Fowle caused “emotional distress” to both victims, and one had “several long term stays at mental health facilities” after the reported crimes.

A separate Facebook post from the Town and Country Police Department noted that Fowle first started working for the department in 1995 and was promoted to sergeant in 2020.

Court records indicate that Fowle will be held without bond, though an attorney has filed a motion for a bond reduction. The next scheduled court appearance in Fowle’s case ins Jan. 29, per Missouri court records.
