30 Charges Against N. St. Louis County Man

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The St. Louis Prosecutor says Thurlester Johnson has so many criminal charges against him, all the charges could not be filed in one day.

Johnson has 30 charges against him and officials say there will be more.  They know of 21 victims across the metro, including the Metro East.

He is the suspect who allegedly  robbed seven women who were leaving a Cardinals game, and four seniors leaving a bingo game.

Johnson, who has had 61 criminal convictions, a weapon in prison, and who assaulted a fellow inmate, was given early release by the Missouri Parole Board:  They let him out 13 years early.

Detectives raided his home in North St. Louis County and found a gun and several stolen purses.   More charges will be filed Friday morning.
