Officers received a call Monday night from Kohl’s loss prevention that two people were reportedly concealing items in the dressing room to later steal them. One suspect, Jordan Hutchinson, was cutting open packages inside the dressing room, and when approached by loss prevention officers, he said “I will kick your a** if you don’t let me go,” according to police.

Loss prevention officers let Hutchinson and his reported accomplice, Estelle Nelson, leave the store, and watched them drive off in a silver Ford Mustang. The officers reported the incident to police, who would later find the pair not far from the store.

Once officers stopped the pair, they arrested Hutchinson, 27, on the spot for a revoked vehicle registration, driving on a suspended license and suspicion of retail theft.54ecaff5968a7_preview-620

Officers searched Nelson, 31, and reportedly found a $20 bill wrapped around a small bag of heroin. Officers reportedly felt a second item in her bra, which Nelson said was a bag of meth.

Police searched Hutchinson’s car and reportedly found heroin, a small scale and Nelson’s purse, with about $291 in cash of varying denominations, in the passenger seat. In the driver’s seat, numerous items of drug paraphernalia were found, including containers of heroin, a burnt spoon and syringes, according to police.

Nelson was arrested and informed of her rights. She reportedly told police she had several bags of meth stashed in her bra, and the bra she was wearing was stolen from Kohl’s. She also told police she had texted back and forth with other individuals to arrange the distribution of various controlled substances.

Hutchinson reportedly knew about the heroin in the car, and both used meth before going into Kohl’s.

At the Utah County Jail, Hutchinson submitted to a urine test, which reportedly tested positive for meth, speed, benzodiazepine, opiates and cocaine.

Hutchinson was booked on suspicion of the following charges: one second-degree felony for possession of heroin, one second-degree felony for possession of meth, one third-degree felony for retail theft, one class A misdemeanor for possession of drug paraphernalia, and numerous traffic-related charges.

Nelson was booked on suspicion of the following charges: one second-degree felony for possession of heroin, one second-degree felony for possession of meth, one second-degree felony for dispensing a controlled substance, and one class A misdemeanor for possession of drug paraphernalia.

All of the drug-related charges were enhanced as Kohl’s is a drug-free zone.
