EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – On Friday, Sept. 5, Egg Harbor Township Police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating Lisa Johnson, 50, of Sicklerville, who is wanted for allegedly using a stolen ATM card to withdraw money from the account of her elderly patient. She was previously charged with stealing items from the same man.

According to police, an investigation by Detective Robert Harte uncovered there had been an unauthorized withdraw of $2,000 from the victim’s Bank of America bank account using his ATM card. The withdrawals took place in four transactions between Aug. 1 and Aug. 4.  

  Johnson, a home health aide, and her boyfriend, Justin Brown, 26, of Galloway, were charged Aug. 13 with theft and receiving stolen property after they allegedly pawned jewelry stolen from the 82-year-old resident of the Elmwood Estates Mobile Park in the Cardiff section of the township. Johnson was arrested and released on her own recognizance pending court.

Further investigation led the detective to the additional theft from the bank account.

The victim had called police on Aug. 8 claiming Johnson and Brown had pried open a jewelry box and removed most of the jewelry inside. Police said that according to records in the RAPID pawn system, the two pawned the jewelry in early June.

A warrant was issued for Brown, who turned himself in to the Egg Harbor Township Police Department on Wednesday, Aug. 14 and was charged and released pending a court date.  

This incident is being investigated by Detective Robert Harte of the Egg Harbor Township Criminal Investigations Bureau.

Johnson is still at large and anyone with information as to her whereabouts is asked to contact the Egg Harbor Township Police Department at 609-927-5200.
