BRISTOW, Okla._The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation needs your help finding the man they believe posed as a Loomis employee and took $70,000 from a Bristow Wal-Mart.

On July 4, a man dressed in a black polo shirt, black vest and black baseball hat met with the assistant manager at the Bristow Wal-Mart. The suspect, Bryan Johnson, was taken to the cash office where he signed the Loomis account book and received the Wal-Mart deposit of more than $70,000. He left the store in a black Chevrolet sedan. Shortly after, the real Loomis driver arrived.

On July 6, the Bristow Police Department requested assistance from OSBI. During the investigation, agents determined the store manager on duty at the time, Rice Robertson, had devised the plan. Robertson was helped out by his step-daughter, Mariah Bustamonte. Bustamonte drove the suspect to and from the store. Robertson and Bustamonte were arrested last month.

After weeks of investigation, OSBI and a Creek County District Attorney investigator identified the suspect as Bryan Jervante Johnson of Bakersville, California. Johnson is also wanted in California for several robberies and a shooting.

Robertson reportedly took Johnson to a bus station in Tulsa after the crime. Johnson’s current whereabouts are unknown.

If anyone has knowledge of where he may be located, contact the OSBI at 1-800-522-8017.
