Man Wanted On Weapons-Related Charges From A.C.W. Incident

The OPP in Huron County are asking for public assistance in finding a man wanted for weapons-related offences that took place near Dungannon last Thursday.

A police investigation determined that the owner of a side-by-side utility vehicle suspected that his stolen machine was being stored at a residence on River Mill Line. He and a friend went to the property, but were met with resistance, and there was confrontation.

As the two men left the property, the other man fired a shot from a rifle in the direction of their vehicle. Later, police recover a firearm used in this incident, but the man disappeared.

An arrest warrant has been issued for 29-year-old Kody Johnson of no fixed address. He is wanted for assault, mischief, careless use of a firearm, and two counts of fail to comply with a probation order.

He’s described as about 6’0″ tall, weighing around 170 pounds, with a medium build and dark hair. He has ties to Huron, Perth and Bruce counties.

Anyone with information about the suspect should call the OPP or the nearest local police department.
