Fugitive wanted in Elkhart, St. Joseph Counties placed under arrest


It was on Sunday, Jan. 21, that investigators say Preston Johnson evaded police in St. Joseph County during a stand-off and search of a home in the 64000 block of Dogwood Road.

On Friday, Jan. 26, the 28-year-old man was taken into custody. Johnson was located at a home in Elkhart. He’s now being held on several charges, including resisting law enforcement.

A tipster called police, last weekend, and said a man that who had a warrant out for his arrest was headed to a home on Dogwood and may have had other stolen guns with him.
