According to the sheriff’s office, deputies responded Saturday to the Rivington neighborhood after a woman reported that a neighbor’s camera caught Johnson looking into her window three separate times.
The first incident happened on Jan. 8, according to deputies.
During a patrol Thursday night, Johnson ran from a deputy and hid in a swampy area near the neighborhood.
Authorities said they were able to locate him with a drone.
The sheriff’s office said Johnson lives in the same neighborhood and he blamed a mental illness and uncontrollable urges for his behavior.
Johnson was being held on a $1,000 bond but bonded out Friday morning.
