A six-time felon is being arraigned this morning in St. Joseph after a pair of robberies on Monday.
After robbing a Best Buy with goods totaling $1,500 and a Ross with goods totaling $500, the Buchanan County Sheriff’s Department arrested two suspects.
One suspect, 28-year-old Terrance Johnson has 29 felony arrests, six felony convictions, and two misdemeanor convictions. He is now potentially charged with tampering with a motor vehicle, assault and possession of a controlled substance after charges are filed by the Buchanan County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
After Johnson was seen by witnesses being chased by employees from Best Buy and he and his accomplice, 28-year-old Cherrelle Miller were both seen by witnesses carrying items out of Ross and loading them into a vehicle that had been identified as stolen, they were cornered by law enforcement. Johnson rammed the stolen Jeep into a police vehicle.
Miller is charged with tampering with a motor vehicle, a felony. Other potential charges listed in the probable cause statement include stealing and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
