CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - 39 year-old Jason Johnson pleaded not guilty behind the screen of a Cuyahoga County Courtroom Friday. He received a $2,500 personal bond.

In December, Johnson was featured on Cuyahoga’s Most Wanted on 19 News.

He will be arraigned Friday morning for failing to register as a sex offender after getting out of jail.

Wednesday, Crime Stoppers of Cuyahoga County announced because of a tip this sex offender is back in custody.

Johnson was arrested in 2020 as a part of “Operation Moving Target” that rounded up 27 men who thought they were meeting a minor for sex.

They were actually talking to undercover agents and when they showed up to a decoy house, they were arrested.

When Johnson arrived, according to Crime Stoppers, he had with him condoms, a knife and chicken nuggets with ranch.

He was featured in December of 2022, and a tip then finally lead to the Sheriff’s warrant unit picking up the fugitive.
