Fayetteville, N.C. — Cumberland County investigators said Wednesday that they are searching for a Fayetteville woman accused of stealing jewelry from her great-grandmother, who was visiting town to celebrate her 100th birthday.
Arrest warrant have been issued for Christina Marie Johnson, 34, of 2901 Birchcreft Drive, charging her with felony larceny and possession of stolen goods.
Johnson is described as white, 5 feet 9 inches tall and about 175 pounds. She has brown hair and green eyes and has several tattoos, including the name "Christina” on her upper left arm.
The alleged theft occurred on May 2 and involved four pieces of gold and diamond jewelry valued at $7,000, authorities said. Johnson’s mother later called the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, saying Johnson wanted to surrender because she had taken the jewelry.
Anyone with information on Johnson's whereabouts is asked to call the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office at 910-323-1500.
