SALT LAKE CITY – A woman suspected of assisting the suspect in a Riverton shooting was found and arrested in Ivins Monday.
According to a tweet by the Salt Lake City Police Department, detectives learned that Keria Jessica Hartley-Johnson, 35, allegedly assisted Justin Llewelyn in avoiding capture by police.
Llewelyn was wanted for allegedly firing at two officers and shooting a homeowner earlier this month.
In a probable cause statement released in Utah’s 3rd District Court, police stated that while conducting an investigation on Llewelyn, they interviewed an individual who stated that they heard Hartley-Johnson brag about how she had allegedly successfully hidden him from police. The interviewee also stated that Hartley-Johnson had made plans to transport Llewelyn to a hotel in Beaver Dam, Utah. The interviewee also told police that Hartley-Johnson had bought Llewelyn a cell phone.
Police said that on Jan. 21, the interviewee began cooperating with police in their efforts to locate Llewelyn. On Jan. 24, the individual allegedly received a call from Hartley-Johnson. In a voicemail, she threatened the individual with violence, and advised him to, “run and hide,” the probable cause statement said.
A warrant was issued for her arrest, and she was taken into custody by police in Ivins.
