Jackson County inmate who escaped now facing an additional felony charge

Malcolm D. Johnson, the Jackson County inmate who escaped in February before he was recaptured in August, now faces an additional felony charge, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Johnson, dob: 8/14/1989, faces Unlawful Possesion of a Firearm.*

According to court documents, Johnson was found by Independence Police in the back of a truck parked in the 3800 block of S. Canterbury Place. The defendant was passed out and a black assault rifle was lying in the truck bed next to him. He also had a round of ammunition in his right front pants pocket. Police confirmed the rifle was reported stolen in Kansas City on 12/23/2015. The defendant lied about his identity, but once police confirmed his identity they found the active warrant from Raytown, MO., for 2nd Degree Murder.

Johnson was mistakenly released from the Jackson County Detention Center on Feb. 18, 2016, after an arrest warrant was served by the Raytown Police Department.
