Accused Serial Robber Caught in Visalia

VISALIA, Calif. (KMPH) -

A serial robber targeting businesses in Tulare County has been arrested.

Visalia Police say Adam Johnson, 32, is the man behind at least eight robberies in Visalia, Exeter and unincorporated areas of Tulare County over the past three weeks.

The first robbery occurred at a Pizza Hut in the city of Visalia on June 25th. From there, police say, Johnson robbed seven more businesses, including a Rite Aid, Shell gas station, Holiday Inn and the Motel 99 near Tulare.

Police say it was surveillance video of the July 4th robbery at the Motel 99 that helped them identify Johnson as a suspect. And that after that video was aired on the news, a viewer tip helped them track Johnson down.

Johnson was arrested Saturday in Visalia and is currently in jail on eight charges of felony armed robbery.
