Robbery Suspect Quickly Captured











SOUTH COUNTY— The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call at 2:10 a.m. Saturday in reference to an armed robbery at a Best Western hotel located in the 17000 Block of Interstate 45, just North of State Highway 242.

The victim stated while he was walking toward his vehicle in the parking lot, he was approached by an armed man. The bandit was later identified as 25-year-old Christopher Jay Johnson, whose legal address is the 15000 block of Willis Way in Conroe. The victim said Johnson pointed a handgun at him, demanding his money. The victim gave almost $100 to Johnson, who then fled the location on foot. Johnson went to a nearby parking lot where he got into a white single cab pickup truck and drove away. The victim then called 911, and gave an accurate description of the suspect vehicle.

Montgomery County Dispatch Services broadcasted an “attempt to locate” on Johnson’s truck.

About 15 minutes later, a Conroe Police Department unit found Johnson in his vehicle in the City of Conroe. The victim then positively identified him as the gunman.
