LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say they were able to set up a sting in order to arrest a man with a stolen iPhone.
According to an arrest report, a woman called police to report that her iPhone had been stolen. Police say she had been contacted by 28-year-old Chesimon D. Jones, who offered to sell the iPhone back to her for $250.
With the guidance of LMPD, the victim arranged for Jones to meet her at the JCPenney in the Jefferson Mall on Monday afternoon.
While at the store, Jones allegedly used the stolen iPhone to call the victim. Police say they witnessed this on store surveillance video -- all while the victim was sitting next to a Louisville Metro Police officer.
That's when an officer walked into the store and placed Jones in handcuffs.
Police say Jones "refused to cooperate" with police, putting up a struggle, but he was eventually restrained.
According to the arrest report, police found the stolen iPhone, as well as crack cocaine and $2,350 when they searched Jones.
At one point, Jones allegedly, "leaned over, while cuffed, and used his mouth to pick up the bag of crack cocaine." He then tried to swallow the bag in front of police, according to the arrest report. Officers had to pry his mouth open and forcibly remove the drugs.
Jones has been charged with receipt of stolen property, trafficking in a controlled substance, resisting arrest, tampering with physical evidence and possession of a controlled substance.
