40 year old Joseph L. Johnson, of Minersville, was wanted on rape and incest related charges involving a minor in Schuylkill County. Last week it was determined that Johnson may have fled to the greater Atlanta metropolitan area.
Late Monday afternoon, members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force located Johnson in the 300 block of Bonnie Lee Lane in Atlanta. He was taken into custody without incident. Johnson is being held in DeKalb County Prison pending extradition to Pennsylvania.
