Galena man arrested for stolen car after not reporting to jail


A 19-year-old Galena man is in custody after not reporting to jail and allegedly stealing a car.

Shawn. L. Johnson was supposed to report to the Jo Daviess County Jail at 7:00 p.m. on March 27 to start serving a 180 day sentence for possession of cannabis. However, Johnson never showed.

Around 9:30 p.m. that night, the Galena Police Department was notified of a stolen car from the downtown Galena area. Initial investigation by the Galena and Dubuque Police Departments showed that Johnson may be a suspect in the incident.

The next afternoon, the Dubuque Police Department arrested Johnson while in possession of the stolen vehicle.
