Abingdon man arrested Friday for drugs; possession of a stolen vehicle and more.

On Friday, July 24th around 9:45 pm, Galesburg Police responded to a call about an individual who attempted to enter Walmart after the store had closed. The male subject was reported to be driving a Dodge Pickup truck that had been reported stolen out of Avon, Illinois. Police made contact with the subject, 22-year old Kendyll Johnson of Abingdon. Johnson claimed the vehicle belonged to his girlfriend, but also told police the vehicle was sold to him by someone from Roseville. According to police reports, he also claimed the battery died; but when Walmart security offered a “jump-start” assistance, he refused, and became erratic when they wouldn’t allow him to enter the store and began aggressively hitting the vehicle. Police then notified Johnson that he was under arrest. Upon searching his person, police discovered a glass meth pipe. While searching the vehicle, police found two .44 caliber Remington Mag pistol rounds, a prescription pill bottle containing 10 Buprenorphine pills, baggie that field-tested positive for methamphetamine, as well as an open title for the vehicle that did not include the name of the vehicle’s buyer. The vehicle also contained a large bag full of power tools. Police notified the vehicle’s actual owner – and when he arrived on the scene he notified police the ammunition, pill bottle, and power tools were not his. Johnson was placed under arrest for Meth Possession less than 5 grams, Possession of Controlled Substance less than 15 grams, Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Illegal Possession of Ammunition/Violation of the FOID Act, and Possession of Open Vehicle Title.
