REDMOND, OR -- The man suspected of robbing the gas station at the Redmond Fred Meyer contacted law enforcement, Monday night. Redmond Police say 38-year-old Justin Lee Johnson called Deschutes County Dispatch at about 9 p.m. and indicated a desire to turn himself in. Officers contacted him on a piece of undeveloped, privately owned land just east of Redmond, off E. Antler Ave. 


Johnson is charged with Robbery and Theft, in connection with the January 26 Fred Meyer robbery. At the time of his arrest, Johnson told officers all of the money had been given to other people. 


Redmond Police continue to investigate the January 20 robbery at Moe's Food Mart. No arrests have been made in that case.
