PROBABLE CAUSE: On 2/11/19, Officers of the Ogden City Police Department were contacted by
Eric Johnson Sr. at 862 W. Lake St. He arrived at his home and found his sons Eric Jr. and Kamron
Johnson at their home in what appeared to be an aggravated robbery. Kamron had been shot multiple
times and succumbed to his injuries, while Eric was still alive despite being shot multiple times.

Eric Jr. was transported to a local hospital and while there named one of the suspects as his one-time
friend, Theron Farmer, and the other as a heavier set Hispanic male introduced by Theron. He advised
that the male drew a weapon and fired while Theron showed off what appeared to be a gun in his
waistband to Eric and raided the house looking for property to steal. Theron was involved in the planning
of the robbery, which included contacting the Johnsons to make sure they were at home, so they could be
robbed.

On 2/12/19, Theron was located by Ogden City Detectives in Layton City. Layton City SWAT responded
and assisted in apprehending Theron at a Layton City apartment complex. He was taken to the Ogden
City Police Department for an interview. He was allowed to rest through the night and in the morning of
2/13/19 he was taken to the Weber County Sheriff's Office Investigations holding cells. He was
eventually pulled aside for an interview and was read his rights per Miranda. He waived his rights and
opted to speak with me.
During this follow-up interview with Theron he admitted to being present during the murder of Kamron
and attempted murder of Eric Jr. He admitted that Kamron was shot and killed during this robbery and
that he saw Eric Jr. shot multiple times. After they left he admitted to being given two phones that he
believed were Kamron's and Eric Jr. and throwing them out of the vehicle after they left the scene. He
stated that they had gone to the home to purchase drugs and that the other male shot both Johnsons and
that they looted the house and took Xanax, a small unknown amount of cash, a pair of pants, and a coat
(brand unknown).

This information is based on evidence obtained from the following witness(es):
