Fugitive Captured After Trying To Get Job At Sheriff’s Office


A woman who had been on the run from authorities made it easy for them to locate her.

She had submitted a job application to the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office, in New Jersey, applying to become a security guard.

On Tuesday, 27-year-old Zyeama Y. Johnson was charged with being a fugitive from justice.

She was wanted by officials in Monroe County, Pennsylvania, for not appearing in court on offenses related to fraud. She also had 10 bench warrants for failing to appear in court for traffic offenses in Jersey City.

After being called into the station to come in for what she thought was going to be a discussion about her application, Johnson was arrested.

During the investigation, authorities learned that Johnson had previously been employed by the U.S. Postal Service. Now, the Postal Investigative Service has begun a different investigation.

Following Johnson being caught, authorities say that they found her with two stolen credit cards. Thus, she also was charged with credit card theft offenses.
