Wanted Felon Escapes Manhunt, Possibly To Century

April 30, 2016

Authorities are on the lookout for a Flomaton man that may have escaped to Century during a manhunt Friday afternoon.

Flomaton Police responded to the home of Johnny Jermaine Johnson about 2:45 p.m. after receiving a call that he was holding a woman against her will. Officers arrived to find that Johnson had already fled out of a bedroom window.

K-9 units from Fountain Correctional in Atmore and Century Correctional were called to the scene as Flomaton Police established a perimeter along with the Escambia County (AL) Sheriff’s Office. Johnson was tracked through thick woods and brush in the MLK Drive and Vanhoosen Road area, with dogs loosing his scent in the area of MLK and Bell Street.  Police received a tip that he had been picked up by a family member and transported to Century.

Johnson has unrelated felony warrants for his arrest for escape and a probation violation, according to Flomaton Police Chief Bryan Davis, who issued a warning to anyone that might harboring Johnson.

“Being that Johnson has multiple felony warrants for his arrest, anyone that is found to assist or hide Johnson can be charged with hindering prosecution, which is a felony,” Davis said.

The female that was reportedly being held against her will was found at Johnson’s residence when officers arrived. Police said she is safe and received minor injuries.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Johnson is asked to call the Flomaton Police Department at (850) 296-5811 or their local law enforcement agency.
