After a Johnson County Amber Alert issued this past weekend, 10-year-old Brianna Crane of Solon was found safe after being dropped off by a third party at 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

Crane was originally reported as abducted by Kenneth Johns, who was taken into custody Sunday and booked around 9 a.m. by Davenport police.

According to an Iowa Department of Public Safety release, Johns was taken into custody at a residence, and no injuries were sustained during his arrest.

As of Sunday afternoon, he was being held without bond in the Scott County Jail on an interstate detainer.

Police held a press conference on the night of March 7 in which they said Johns was armed and dangerous but hadn’t made any threats.

Authorities believe that Johns had abducted Crane on March 7.
