WILLINGBORO, N.J. (CBS) — A 12-day manhunt for a Willingboro (Burlington County), NJ man wanted on murder charges ended this morning with his arrest.
Burlington County prosecutor Robert Bernardi says 34-year-old Zedrick Johnson was taken into custody in the 100 block of North 23rd Street in Camden.
Bernardi says Johnson went on a crime spree on February 11th which started with the beating death of a gas station attendant at the Lukoil Gas station on Route 130 and Charleston Road in Willingboro (see related story).
“The next day,” Bernardi tells KYW Newsradio, “he robbed a convenience store in Willingboro — a Sunny Food Mart. And then it culminated in another armed robbery of a gas station in Delran on February 20th. And therefore we obviously considered him extremely dangerous.”
Bernardi says Johnson is being held in the Burlington County Jail. He’ll have his first appearance before a judge in county Superior Court on Monday.
The charges against him include felony murder and two counts of armed robbery.
