CdA shooter arrested on heroin charge

A man who shot two men in downtown Coeur d’Alene in what a grand jury ruled was self defense  jail returned to on a heroin charge after a SWAT team raid in Post Falls.

Adam M. Johnson, 27, was in a room with a syringe loaded with heroin when police arrived on Friday with a search warrant.

Johnson, the founder of a telecommunications company and a member of the Post Falls Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, “denied ownership of the syringe and advised me that he did not know who it belonged to,” according to a report by Post Falls police Detective Brian Williamson.

When he was arrested, Johnson had on him a plastic straw with brown residue, police say, which is typically used to ingest drugs.

Johnson told The Spokesman-Review on Tuesday that he’s passed a drug test and had no knowledge of drugs in the home until the raid.

Johnson was featured in The Spokesman-Review a weekend before the shooting in a story about the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.. He was also featured in 2007 in a story about his business, Convertec.
