HIGH SPRINGS, Fla. (WCJB) — A High Springs man was arrested after being accused of robbing multiple locations across Bell and High Springs.
In a High Springs Police arrest report, Barbara and James Sukow reported that their car was broken into. While on the phone with dispatch, the couple says that Jason Alan Hutton, 37, was riding around in on a bike and got into an argument with James. The argument escalated and the couple says that Hutton threatened to stab James and pulled out a knife sheath with no knife. After brief fight, Hutton ran away from the area.
When HSPD arrived, they were shown pictures of Hutton and began processing the scene. During their investigation, they discovered three duffel bags and two buckets of items nearby that belonged to the Choi Kwan Do martial arts dojo which appeared to be burglarized and had blood on the walls. HSPD also located Hutton’s missing knife.
Hutton eventually returned to the scene where he was identified by the couple as the man burglarizing their car. Police matched the blood on the dojo walls and on the couples broken car window with a fresh wound on Hutton’s hand.
Hutton was taken to the Alachua County Jail and is charged with aggravated assault, 2 counts of burglary and grand theft. He was taken to the Alachua County Jail on a $217,500 bond.
