SUMMARY:

On Tuesday, August 14, 2018, deputies responded to the report of a grand theft that had just occurred at a residence in the 24000 block of Cuyama Road in Apple Valley. According to the reporting party, they had just witnessed someone steal an air conditioner from a house where the residents were not currently home.

The witness saw the two suspects, later identified as Eddie Ray Johnson and Kenny Michael Huson, walking around the property and lingering near and touching the air conditioner. When the two men drove away from the house, the witness saw the air conditioner was gone. The witness was able to get the California License Plate number off the 1999 maroon Chevy Suburban they were driving and provided the information to Deputy Sandles, along with descriptions of both suspects.

The vehicle was registered to a residence in the 13200 block of Yakima Road in Apple Valley. Deputy Sandles went to the residence and located Johnson and Huson, the truck and stolen air conditioner. Eddie Ray Johnson and Kenny Michael Huson were arrested for grand theft and conspiracy. They were booked at High Desert Detention Center in lieu of $50,000.00 bail each.

These suspects were apprehended with the assistance of a community member who was watching out for their neighbors. This witness did a great job by providing deputies with pertinent information, while still staying a safe distance away and not jeopardizing their own safety.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to contact Deputy J. Sandles at Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station, (760) 552-6800. Persons wishing to remain anonymous can report information to WeTip by calling 1-800-78-CRIME, or by accessing the website at www.wetip.com.
