Drug suspect hunkers-down against police

Posted by wlpo on August 31, 2014

   Law enforcement officers in Springfield say a drug suspect arrested this week had barricaded himself inside his home behind a door reinforced with iron bars, windows covered with plywood and a back door rigged to deliver an electric shock.

   The Springfield State Journal-Register reports that 55-year-old Robert Johnson Junior was arrested Thursday.  He’s a suspected crack cocaine dealer also charged with criminal fortification of a residence, a Class 3 felony.
