Muskogee man sentenced for burglaries, stealing fire trucks

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that a Muskogee man was sentenced to prison for home invasion robbery, fire station burglaries, and thefts.

Aaron Isaiah Johnson, 36, was sentenced to 15 years in prison for conspiracy to commit robbery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon with intent to do bodily harm, robbery, use, carry, and brandish of a firearm, and second-degree burglary.

Charges against Johnson arose after a probe by the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office, the Muskogee County Sheriff’s Office, and the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office.

On Nov. 12, 2021, Johnson was found guilty by a federal jury. According to court documents, Johnson broke into an occupied residence while masked and armed with a rifle. He encountered the homeowner when he stuck and assaulted them with the firearm.

He stole the homeowner’s cash, a firearm, and vehicle.

Johnson then broke into the Red Bird Fire station and stole two fire trucks on Feb. 27, 2019. He stole another fire truck March 14, 2019, when he broke into the Liberty Fire station.

Fortunately, Johnson was wearing a court-ordered GPS ankle monitor that placed him at all three locations at the time the crimes occurred.

Honorable Judge Ronald A. White presided over the hearing and Johnson was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal pending transportation to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to serve a non-paroleable sentence.
