PORT ORCHARD — Police say a Washington state man crashed a stolen truck at the entrance of a naval base where he was seeking refuge from bombs he believed were in the truck and at his home.
The Kitsap Sun reported that Joshua John Johannessen, 40, was charged with one count of first-degree robbery following the accident Friday at Naval Base Kisap-Bangor.
Police say Johannessen resisted arrest and appeared to be under the influence of a stimulant and suffering mental distress. A knife was found in the vehicle but no explosives were located.
Police say a security camera recorded the truck’s theft at knifepoint from a woman at a gas station earlier in the day.
A five-year-old girl with Johannessen was taken into protective custody.
