UPDATE: Escaped inmate caught in south OKC | News
OKLAHOMA CITY — There is new information on a two-day standoff last week in a metro neighborhood involving an escaped inmate. Investigators arrested that inmate, 25-year-old Kristopher Johnson, and his girlfriend 25-year-old Chelsea Price.
Oklahoma City police spent two days outside Price’s home when the two refused to come out. Court documents reveal that someone else may have also been involved.
This time it appears no one really is home inside the house police say an escaped inmate hid out with his girlfriend. They refused to answer the door or even acknowledge that they were inside until officers and a swat team went in after them.
Now, a week later, a clearer picture develops as we learn the sequence of events that led up to the standoff and the arrest of inmate Kristopher Johnson and his girlfriend Chelsea Price.
Court documents say Price picked up Johnson after he escaped from a corrections facility in Union City.
Investigators say they hid out in hotels for the first few days and then Johnson stole a pickup truck at gunpoint.
Officers say they learned Johnson was staying at his girlfriend’s home when they attempted to nab him. He led police on a high speed chase in that stolen pickup and returned to the home parking the truck in the garage.
While officers surrounded the neighborhood, neighbors watched.
Investigators say Johnson’s dad, Curtis Johnson, was also watching as he canvased the area trying to help his son escape but there was nowhere for to go.
