DA: Jonaphar Johnson suspected in a series of armed robberies dating back more than a year
Last Updated: 106 days ago
DENVER - A serial armed robbery suspect believed to have committed holdups repeatedly at the same location is now facing charges and more are likely.
Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey filed multiple kidnapping and aggravated robbery charges last week against Jonaphar Johnson, 28.
While more charges are expected to be filed in the future, the current charges stem from the robbery of the Auto Zone on East Colfax Avenue on July 29. Johnson is accused of using a gun to hold four employees at gunpoint and steal cash.
Johnson is also a suspect in other similar robberies in Denver and Aurora over the past year.
A judge set Johnson's bond at $50,000 and he is currently still in custody. Johnson will return to court on Sept. 3 for a preliminary hearing.
