Long Prison Sentence For Bucks County Carjacker

Calling him a threat to society, Bucks County Common Pleas Judge Wallace H. Bateman sentenced 22 year old Zahir Johnson to 11 to 30 years in prison for his role in two carjackings or attempt to carjack. He was sentenced yesterday.

On June 13,2022, Johnson and two juveniles grabbed a victim in Warrington as he was pumping gas inside a Shell Station on Easton Road. They tried to overpower the victim but were not strong enough and the victim broke free. Johnson and his co defendants ran away from the scene and went further up the road.

About an hour later, Johnson and his gang of thieves grabbed another victim in a choke hold and then started to punch him. The victim tossed keys and the thieves then stole his vehicle.

Shortly after, Warrington police officers spotted the vehicle near the intersection of Route 202 and Route 152, a few miles from the gas station. Police initiated a traffic stop and the vehicle fled. Police later found the vehicle crashed into a building at the intersection of Route 152 and East Butler Avenue in Chalfont. All three males fled from the vehicle and were taken into custody a short time later.

This crime was caught on security video that you can see below.

The two juveniles were also sentenced previously. This video was played in court. Johnson has a lengthy record in Philadelphia,where he is from. He must also pay $97,000 in restitution. Prison officials sometimes will tap into an inmate account to pay fines issued by the court. That means friends and family of Johnson will be paying his fine when they put money on his books. That also means Johnson will have very limited commissary funds during his stay until his fine is paid off.
