Serial Greenville Burglar Sentenced

GREENVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — A man who twice burglarized a business directly across the street from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office in Greenville has been sentenced. Kenneth Johnson pled guilty Monday afternoon in Washington County Circuit Court to two indictments charging Business Burglary, District Attorney W. Dewayne Richardson announced Thursday. On the mornings of June 1, 2017, and June 2, 2017, officers of the Greenville Police Department were dispatched to Rick’s Express on Alexander Street across the Washington County Sheriff’s Office in response to a Business Burglary. On both occasions, employees of the business advised officers that they had arrived to work to find the store in disarray and after viewing the video surveillance, they learned that they had been burglarized. Detectives arrived on scene to initiate an investigation. Greenville Police Officers were quickly able to identify the suspect observed on the store’s camera footage as Kenneth Johnson. The next day, he was taken into custody and confessed. Johnson was sentenced to two concurrent terms of 7 years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections as a Habitual Offender and ordered to undergo long-term alcohol and drug treatment.
