The Snohomish County Auto Theft Task Force wants your help in finding 36-year-old Aaron Johnson, a suspect in multiple vehicle thefts, burglaries, and a robbery, and whose abandoned vehicle was found on Highway 99 in Edmonds.

According to the task force:

• On Dec. 11, an adult female was robbed of her vehicle outside her residence in Everett. Johnson arrived at the location in a stolen black Jeep Cherokee. Johnson approached the victim and forced her out of her car, peeling the victim's fingers off her steering wheel and dragging the victim down the road, causing substantial injuries. Johnson then stole the victim's vehicle.

• On Jan. 15, Johnson burglarized a residence in unincorporated Snohomish. He arrived in the same stolen Jeep Cherokee as he did during the December robbery. Johnson was identified via surveillance footage while burglarizing the residence.

• Later on Jan.15, Johnson was again caught on surveillance burglarizing a shed in unincorporated Snohomish. Johnson is seen walking up to a shed with a pair of red bolt cutters and stealing a torch set worth about $1,000.

• Johnson is also recognized on security video committing package thefts in Snohomish County and ID thefts at Home Depot in Snohomish. He is seen driving a white Audi TT that was half-painted black and bearing multiple stolen license plates.

• On Feb. 12, the Edmonds Police Department recovered the abandoned stolen Audi TT from a parking lot on Highway 99. During a search of the Audi, detectives recovered Johnson's casino playing card, along with multiple documents and prescription bottles bearing his name.

They also located several pieces of clothing linking Johnson to two additional Lake Stevens Police Department cases. Inside the Audi, detectives also located all the stolen license plates that were used on the vehicle during the various crimes it was used in.

Johnson currently has a nationwide extraditable felony warrant issued by the Snohomish County Superior Court for the following crimes:

• Second-degree robbery and theft of a motor vehicle;
