Investigators arrest fugitive, charge associates

The Clayton County Sheriff’s Fugitive Unit has caught up with a man, who has been wanted since a February shooting that occurred during a drug deal, according to a spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office.

Lt. Brian Crisp said Roshod Darrius Johnson, 30, was found, Thursday, at the Riverdale Villa Apartments. Crisp said Johnson was armed with a .40-caliber handgun at the time of this arrest.

He is being held without bond in the Clayton County Jail, on charges of armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Crisp said the charges stem from an incident that was reported Feb. 25. Johnson allegedly phoned someone to set up a drug deal. When the person showed up with his girlfriend, Johnson allegedly pulled a firearm, robbed and shot the man, according to Crisp.

Investigators also arrested Johnson’s girlfriend, Sixta Desrochers, 36, Thursday, for allegedly hindering the apprehension of a criminal. Crisp said she transported him from place to place, helping him evade arrest, knowing he was wanted for armed robbery.

Johnson’s associates were also charged with helping him hide from investigators, said Crisp. Anthony Lee Waller, 30, and Cynthia Ann Waller, 29, were arrested for allegedly allowing Johnson to evade arrest by hiding him out at their apartment, knowing he was wanted in the February incident.

All three are being held without bond in the Clayton County Jail.
