KCSO Arrests Attempted Carjacking Suspects

Tuesday, 19 June 2018

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office arrested two people responsible for a Tuesday afternoon vehicle theft and attempted carjacking. Officers with KCSO’s Special Investigations and Highway Interdiction Units located 34-year-old Jordan Andrew Hayes of Philadelphia, Tennessee and 28-year-old Stephanie Marie Nieporte of Knoxville around 5:30 p.m. at Walmart on Parkside Drive following a brief surveillance. Nieporte was taken into custody without incident in the parking lot. Hayes fled on foot and was taken into custody in a nearby parking lot. 

Hayes and Nieporte are responsible for an attempted carjacking in the Atomic Pawn parking lot, located at 8843 Kingston Pike, that occurred around 1:30 this afternoon when they attempted to take a pick-up truck from a couple.  After the man in the pick-up confronted Hayes, Hayes and Nieporte fled to Ted Russell Nissan where they stole a red Quad Cab. The truck was recovered following their arrests. The investigation is ongoing, and charges against the two are pending. They will be held in the Roger D. Wilson Detention Facility. Hayes has a criminal history in Knox County that includes public intoxication and multiple driving offenses. The attached mug shot of Hayes is from a prior arrest. No mug shot of Nieporte is available at this time.
