ST. GEORGE — Police arrested a man and woman who were caught having sex Friday afternoon in a truck parked along the street of a commercially zoned area in St. George.

At approximately 1:41 p.m., officers responded to the 400 West block of 200 North on a lewdness report involving a man and woman witnessed having sex in a pickup truck parked along the street, according to a probable cause statement filed by the St. George Police Department in support of the arrest.

Upon arrival, officers saw the man and woman having sex in the passenger side of the truck, the arresting officer wrote in a sworn statement. Officers also allegedly observed multiple items of drug paraphernalia in the truck, including syringes and burnt spoons.

Police spoke with the pair, who were identified as 30-year-old Jonathan Orvin, of Hurricane, and 28-year-old Kimberly Orvin, of Mesa, Arizona, according to the statement.

“When I made contact with both individuals, I noticed the male had his shorts down around his ankles and the female had a small black dress which was pulled up exposing their lower genital extremities,” the arresting officers reported.

When the couple was asked to step out of the truck, Jonathan Orvin reportedly told officers he had prescription medication (Gabapentin) in his pocket given to him by a friend, the report stated.

During a search of the truck, authorities located amphetamine pills that neither the man nor the woman had a prescription for, according to the statement. Police also allegedly located numerous used syringes containing a brown tar-like substance that tested positive for heroin.

“They also advised that the substance remaining in the syringes were heroin which they had just used approximately one hour prior to my contact,” the officer wrote in the statement.

The man and woman were arrested and transported to the Washington County Purgatory Correctional Facility.

The Washington County Attorney’s Office filed an Information in 5th District Court accusing both Jonathan and Kimberly Orvin of two class A misdemeanor counts of possession or use of a controlled substance, along with two class B misdemeanor counts of lewdness and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The two are scheduled to appear before 5th District Judge Eric A. Ludlow Monday afternoon for a court arraignment.

Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.

    This article will provide plenty of material for the comedians in our community to chime in…….
    Thank you SGN for some relief .

  • Craig August 28, 2017 at 5:00 pm

    I’m curious? Just what are “lower genital extremities?”

    • Chris August 28, 2017 at 5:21 pm

      those are just below the upper genital extremities

    • Larry August 29, 2017 at 7:20 am

      Yes the ones Below the Breasticles.

  • Lastdays August 28, 2017 at 5:02 pm

    They were ” exposing their lower genital extremities ”
    Well…….that’s one way to put it.

    • St Geo August 28, 2017 at 5:12 pm

      It said her external genital extremities were exposed. It said that his shorts were down around his ankles. His nether region extremities must have been in a place where the cop couldn’t see them, (you’ll have to figure out where they were) but the cop knew that they weren’t supposed to be where they were at 1:41pm in a vehicle even though he couldn’t see them.

    • Lastdays August 28, 2017 at 6:37 pm

      Maybe officers get extra credit for being creative when filling out reports.

  • St Geo August 28, 2017 at 5:07 pm

    At 1:41pm in a vehicle?! Really? Obviously these two horny and hot individuals had the windows rolled up and the a/c off. Don’t judge. hahahahaha!

    • St Geo August 28, 2017 at 5:16 pm

      Perfect thinking. But then again, just try to remember back in the day when you got your first piece.

  • ladybugavenger August 28, 2017 at 5:14 pm

    Pleeeeeze, who hasn’t had sex in a car?

    • comments August 28, 2017 at 5:28 pm

      Oh please, u aint lived until u done it high on meth, heroine, and coke ALL AT THE SAME TIME. 😉

      • ladybugavenger August 28, 2017 at 7:53 pm

        LOL…that’s too much

  • Chris August 28, 2017 at 5:24 pm

    I think these two need a fundraiser

  • 42214 August 28, 2017 at 5:24 pm

    Thank God an innocent child didn’t happen by and see them. That would have been almost as traumatic as seeing a liquor bottle in a restaurant.

    • An actual Independent August 28, 2017 at 7:17 pm

      I’m was always tragically confused until they started posting the little signs. Am I in a Mexican restaurant that serves beer, or a bar that serves Mexican food? SO GLAD the state legislature forced them to clear that up for me.

    • ladybugavenger August 28, 2017 at 7:55 pm

      Or a kid and a voyeurism mom recording it….

  • comments August 28, 2017 at 5:25 pm

    The creepy part is that the cops were standing there peering thru the windows for 20min before they finally tapped on the glass. Also, we see they’re both named Orvin, but if not a married couple… well, you see where this is going. lol

    • DRT August 28, 2017 at 7:45 pm

      That was my thought as well… Now on to other thoughts. The article said they were in a commercial zoned area. Soooooo, if she was charging for it, (or if he was,) at least they were in a commercial zone, and not a library parking lot.
      We have such intelligent people out here in Hurkn…

  • Henry August 28, 2017 at 5:44 pm

    Might hit 100+ comments on this article. Bikeandfish and Comments might be good for 30 comments each by themselves. (Grin)

    • comments August 28, 2017 at 7:25 pm

      dunno H, this case is pretty well solved. not rly anthing to say

      • Henry August 28, 2017 at 8:46 pm

        Yeah, you’re right Bob. This article has no angles involving politicians, Confederates, urban sprawl, or Plygs. 🙂

        • comments August 28, 2017 at 10:19 pm

          exactly, I can’t find any sort of conspiracies. It’s an open and shut case 😉

    • Redbud August 29, 2017 at 2:04 am

      Bikeandfish would typically only respond to this type of article, if the couple who had been caught were of a background other than Caucasian. If they were a different skin color, then he’d say how racist the whole thing was, and race to their defense. You have to cut him some slack though, he’s spent too much time listening to Nancy Pelosi, and thinks she’s God’s greatest gift to earth.

  • paul August 28, 2017 at 7:17 pm

    Jerry springer style keeping it real in the family

    • Thecadean August 28, 2017 at 10:43 pm

      Or game of thrones.. St George style

  • xbcmc059 August 28, 2017 at 8:09 pm

    Good thing there wasn’t a twelve pack of PBR in the truck. Love the doper eyes on the guys sister though.

    • Real Life August 28, 2017 at 10:15 pm

      His sister is probably not a half bad looking girl when she’s not chasing the dragon.

    • comments August 28, 2017 at 10:41 pm

      It was a 24pk but wasn’t logged into evidence. You know I look at these photos and these two do look a lot alike. Does make ya’ wonder huh?

  • Utahguns August 28, 2017 at 9:13 pm

    OMG!….The passenger seat of a car….of all places to have a family reunion.

  • comments August 28, 2017 at 10:18 pm

    With all these cops standin’ around staring at their upper and lower genital extremities it must’ve been quite a show. Someone shoulda brought them out some popcorn or somethin’? Hey you can’t blame them ol’ coppers for peepin’ huh? Let’s go ahead and admit it to ourselves, this here aint a bad lookin’ couple. Good on u coppers, if ya’ll got it filmed on y’alls body cameras you can take a copy home with you. fun fun

  • christoff79 August 29, 2017 at 5:52 am

    Wait… this happened out in Hercun?

    • mesaman August 29, 2017 at 10:20 am

      A clear case of hormonal poisoning; symptoms, libido elevates 200 times normal, eyes are unable to determine beauty from a beast, and urgency overrides logic, judgment, and good sense. Poor things, now they’ll have to wait a long time for a replay.

  • Lola August 29, 2017 at 11:55 am

    Why does St George News have to use ‘sex’ as the header? Shouldn’t it be a couple found with paraphernalia have been arrested? Yes, sex in the middle of the afternoon in a public place is unacceptable. But, needles and heroin? I just don’t understand our local news!

    • ladybugavenger August 29, 2017 at 2:21 pm

      Drugs are found in cars all the time (boring) but add sex to the mix and you get 35 comments ?

  • mctrialsguy August 30, 2017 at 12:10 pm

    The article was great and the creative responses even better. I’ll bet that Ed on the EDge thinks that they are both wayward republicans!

  • mctrialsguy August 30, 2017 at 12:14 pm

    It says that they are innocent until proven guilty…lol

  • utahdiablo August 30, 2017 at 6:34 pm

    “Be Fruitful and Multiply”

  • Harold S. August 31, 2017 at 10:01 am

    Nothing like getting high while getting a little. It’s all fun and games till the cops show up. Way to spoil the party SGPD!!!
