JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- Jonesboro Police have two people in custody for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars worth of stolen merchandise, drugs and firearms after executing a parole search, Wednesday.

JPD officers arrived at 2406 Mary Jane in Jonesboro to search the residence of 30-year-old Jernerio Crump who is on probation and 36-year-old April Crump.

Police are still sorting through hundreds of clothing items trying to figure out what stores they came from and right now they know JC Penny was the number one  store hit.

"This obviously is a very large bust, it's been titled a one stop shop there at the house," said Sgt. Doug Formon with Jonesboro Police Department. "Hundreds of garments of clothing , from children's clothing, adult clothing, household appliances."

Police found everything from a vacuum cleaner and wash cloths to a tea set. They also found sacks and sacks full of clothes with the tag and security sensors still attached.  

Detectives along with officers from the probation department discovered the stolen goods during a parole search.

"We also found guns in the house, we found large sums of alcohol and liquor that were possibly going to be used for sale," Formon said.

Police also found crystal methamphetamine. Jernerio Crump was arrested on 6 felony charges and 2 misdemeanor charges and  April Crump is facing 5 felony charges and 1 misdemeanor charge.

"There's going to be thousands of dollars worth of merchandise once it's all added up," he said. "Every room was just completely full of either clothing, electronics merchandise, vacuum cleaners also new in the box."

Formon said this case was a team effort.  The investigation was conducted by the Drug Task force, PROWL, probation officers and criminal investigation officers.
