Tampa police nab Ernest Johnson, burglar found naked in bed with child

A Florida man has been arrested and charged with molestation and burglary after police say he broke into a Tampa home and was caught in bed with a 10-year-old boy.

Ernest R. Johnson, 25, was arrested after a police dog was used to track him early Sunday morning.

Officers responded to a burglary call Sunday morning when a woman reported that she found Johnson lying naked in bed with her son, police said. Johnson quickly jumped out the window where he entered when he was discover and police said that the search began.

Police said it does not appear that Johnson is registered as a sex offender in the state’s database.

The investigation was ongoing.

10 News reports “that Johnson does have a long rap sheet out of Sarasota County including burglary and an indecent exposure charge in 2013 when he was allegedly caught on surveillance cameras at a Venice Walmart exposing himself to a 5-year-old boy.”
