When officers moved on to search her apartment, they found Crutchfield's ex-boyfriend, Jacinto Andrade, to be holding heroin on his person in an attic bedroom that was reportedly littered with drug paraphernalia.

Both Crutchfield and Adrade were arrested and charged with with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, among other drug related charges. They were released on a promise to appear in court.
