Suspect Found Hiding In Cocoa Carport Attic
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested a suspect who was placed on Brevard County’s Most Wanted List just a week ago.
Maj. Andrew Walters of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Department said Marshall Allen Johnson of Cocoa, 28, was captured Wednesday night following a week-long search.
Johnson was originally placed on felony probation after being convicted of domestic battery by strangulation.
The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit began searching for Johnson a week ago after he had violated the conditions of his probation, Walters said.
Because of the nature of his crimes along with the possibility that he could flee the area, Johnson was placed on Brevard’s Most Wanted List.
On Wednesday evening, Brevard County Sheriff’s Cpl. Tim Michalak was conducting a criminal patrol in the area of Coral Lane in Cocoa when he observed an unfamiliar vehicle parked in a residential driveway.
Finding the vehicle suspicious, Michalak investigated further and discovered the vehicle belonged to Johnson.
Michalak organized a perimeter with agents from the Sheriff’s Fugitive Unit in attempt to locate Johnson, who was found hiding in an attic portion of the residence’s carport and was arrested without incident.
Walters said that Johnson is currently being held at the Brevard County Jail under a No Bond Status.
