Most Wanted: Thomas Clayton Johnson

Posted: Updated:

South Carolina Probation and Parole agents in Charleston County are looking for 21 year old Thomas Clayton Johnson.

Johnson is wanted for a probation violation after being found guilty of discharging a firearm into a dwelling.

"Anytime someone has access to weapons and will do something as serious as discharging a firearm into a dwelling, it gives me caution and I definitely want to see this young man brought in safely," said agent in charge Mitchell Ray.

Johnson hasn't reported to his probation officer since November 2010. Agents say he's done a good job hiding from them.

"We recently conducted a warrant team operation at his last known address. All of our leads and efforts have come up with nothing," Ray said.

Johnson could have been sentenced to up to six years in prison, but because of his age and lack of a record at the time, the judge decided to give him probation, according to authorities.

"That's why we're concerned when someone gets a break of this nature and doesn't take it seriously, you want to make sure this type of person is brought to justice quickly," said Ray.

Authorities say it's possible Johnson may be armed with a gun.

He stands 5'11" and weighs about 135 lbs.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.

You don't have to give your name and may earn a cash reward.
