Johnson was arrested and charged with two counts of trafficking in drugs, possession of crack-cocaine, possession of methamphetamine, weapons under disability and possessing criminal tools. 

He was taken to the Lorain County Jail and held without bond “due to the severity of the charges” and his scheduled appearance in municipal court.

“Additionally, it was determined that Johnson had two active warrants for his arrest in connection to charges stemming from unrelated incidents.”
