According to a probable cause statement, a St. George man flagged down St. George Police Officer Stan Thompson on Saturday afternoon and reported that his firearm had been stolen from his St. George home. The man stated that a female friend had stolen a handgun from him and that her friend, later identified as Jordan Cydnee Larson, 26, had then pawned it, which Larson later admitted to police.

Police officers responded to Larson’s house, located at 376 E. 300 South in St. George, where Scott Harris Larson, 23, also resides.

Inside the Larsons’ home, police officers found two pawn receipts with Jordan Larson’s name on them, numerous stolen items, heroin, and drug paraphernalia. Jordan Larson and Scott Larson both admitted that the heroin and paraphernalia belonged to them. During the investigation, Scott Larson erased several text messages in an attempt to hinder officers, according to the statement.

The estimated value of the stolen property was around $1,020.

Jordan Larson and Scott Larson were arrested and booked into Washington County’s Purgatory Correctional Facility.

Jordan Larson was charged with one second-degree felony for burglary of a dwelling, one second-degree felony for theft of a firearm, one class-A misdemeanor for theft, one second-degree felony for possession of heroin in a drug-free zone, one class-A misdemeanor for possession of paraphernalia and two class-B misdemeanors for theft by deception and an outstanding warrant. According to bookings information, her bail stands at $35,052.

        Actually, they “are” in your neighborhood. You just don’t know it yet.
        Heroin use and prescription Opiate abuse is becoming an epidemic in this area. Folks from 15-50 are struggling with this addiction all over this county. Not sure what the solution for this problem is.

    What a lovely couple. I am so glad they found each other. But, I have a question and hopefully someone can answer it. Isn’t the Pawn Shop required to check the legality of all guns that they purchase? Considering it was a stolen firearm, I doubt this little Bonnie-n-Clyde wannabes had any type of paperwork for the gun.

    Are Jordan Larson and Scott Larson married, brother and sister living together or cousins with the last name? I’m curious if they’re living an incestuous lifestyle or a legitimate couple. You know why Utahans have family reunions, don’t you? It’s to find a date and a mate.
