Yankeetown General Store Burglary Suspects Arrested

Noah Bevins

Robyn Johnson

December 7, 2015

LCSO deputies responded to the Yankeetown General Store located at 6611 HWY 40 West on November 29, 2015. The store clerk discovered someone had entered the store through the roof sometime after closing and took miscellaneous food items and gasoline valued at approximately $190.00.

The clerk reviewed video footage and identified the suspects as Robyn Johnson (9-22-89) and Noah Bevins (2-4-81). Johnson and Bevins were both personally known by the clerk. She also identified Johnson as the daughter of the store owner.

On December 2, 2015, Deputy C. J. Perryman witnessed a disturbance at the Kangaroo gas station in Inglis and responded to intervene. Dep. Perryman quelled the argument and as a normal course of his duties discovered one of the participants in the argument was Robyn Johnson.  Johnson had an active outstanding warrant for her arrest issued by the State of Indiana for failure to appear on a larceny charge.  As Johnson was being taken into custody for the warrant she resisted arrest.

During a search of her purse, Dep. Perryman discovered she was in possession of Methamphetamines and Oxycodone. She was booked into the Levy County Detention Facility and charged with possession of narcotics and resisting arrest. She is being held on an $115,000 bond.

On December 3, 2015, Investigator M. Wilkinson located and arrested Bevins. Bevins was booked into the Levy County Detention Facility and charged with burglary and theft. He also had outstanding warrants for failure to appear. His total bond has been assigned at $37,000.00

On December 7, 2015 Investigator M. Wilkinson filed burglary and theft charges at the Detention Facility on Johnson. She has not been arraigned on these new charges at the time of this release.  

This case is yet another example of how illegal drugs impact the families of the addicted and our community. Robyn Johnson exploited an opportunity to steal from her family which ultimately impacts all the residents of the Yankeetown community.

We at LCSO urge our citizens to stop being victims and report crimes or suspicious activity. Crimes can also be reported anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers at 1-877-349-8477.
