Johnson, 30, and a man walked into the Aikahi Safeway store at about 10:30 p.m. on May 30, 2002. They tried to buy hundreds of dollars worth of groceries using a stolen credit card.
"The manager at the time ran the card and asked for an id due to the signature not matching when she signed. She was unable to produce the id and gave back the items," said Kim Buffett of CrimeStoppers.
The manager took down the license plate number of their vehicle as they left and then called police. An officer making checks of stores in the area found the car in the parking lot at the Foodland on Hekili Street in Kailua.
"They made a call into the store, contacted the manager, made sure they got the description, and said let them make the transaction. Officers waited outside in the parking lot," explained Buffett.
When the pair came out of the store, Johnson was arrested for fraudulent use of a credit card, credit card theft and forgery.
"While being searched, drugs were found on their persons so she was arrested for promoting dangerous drugs in the 3rd degree," said Buffett.
