Woman enters plea in robbery

A Jefferson City woman has pleaded guilty to charges in conjunction with a July robbery in the 1200 block of East Capitol Avenue.

Kenna Johnson, 18, 1324 E. Miller St., pleaded guilty to second-degree robbery.

She had been charged with first-degree robbery.

A charge of armed criminal action was dismissed.

According to police reports, three alleged victims arrived at the location to collect $20 owed to them, where four suspects robbed them at gunpoint.

Two of the three reported victims fled while the third was held at gunpoint and the other suspects emptied his pockets.

The SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics Division) team served a search warrant at the East Capitol address after an investigation suggested methamphetamine was being used and sold at the residence.

Johnson was one of ten subjects taken into custody.

The state chidren’s division placed an infant in protective custody and a teenage girl was taken to the Prenger Family Center.

Later, the city code enforcement inspected and condemned the house.
