Johnson’s arrest warrant states that he confessed to three armed carjackings along with other robberies while police interviewed him.

According to the arrest warrant, Johnson said he did not use a real gun in any of the robberies, but rather a toy gun that he’d painted black so that it would appear real.

Johnson was booked on several charges that include armed robbery and carjacking. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
