The Stark County Sheriff’s Office has released the name of the suspect involved in a Watertown, S.D., who was found near Dickinson on Monday.

Michael Anthony Johnson, 31, of South Dakota, was taken into custody after officers stopped him near Patterson Lake Monday morning. He was driving a car that matched the description provided by Watertown authorities when officers tracked him down using his cellphone signal.

Johnson faces charges of first-degree robbery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

An extradition hearing is scheduled for Wednesday. If Johnson waives his extradition rights, Watertown has 10 days to serve an arrest warrant.
