According to court records, the second bank robbery occurred on July 23, 2019. On that date, Johnson entered the First Bank located at 201 Market Street, in Wilmington, N.C., and, similar to the first robbery, Johnson passed a demand note to the teller, threatening to kill the teller and asking for cash. After the teller handed Johnson the money, Johnson again fled in his vehicle.
The next bank robbery occurred on July 31, 2019, at the BB&T bank located at 150 S. Main Street, in Mount Holly, N.C. As with the prior robberies, Johnson entered the bank, passed a demand note written on an envelope to a teller that read, “I have a gun in my shorts. Give me all of your 50s and 100s. Don’t make me kill you. Don’t make me shoot you.” After the teller put the cash into an envelope and gave it to Johnson, the defendant fled in the same vehicle.
According to court records, on August 23, 2019, Johnson entered the TD Bank located at 535 Greenville Highway, in Hendersonville, N.C., and again passed a demand note to the teller that read, “This is not a joke, I have a gun, I will kill you.” Johnson took the money the teller handed him and left the bank in his vehicle.
Law enforcement arrested Johnson in Charleston in September 2019. On February 3, 2020, he pleaded guilty to bank robbery charges. Johnson is in federal custody and will be transferred into custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons upon designation of a federal facility.
