News 12 Reporter Kena Johnson, who goes by the on-air name Kena Vernon, told cops she was sitting in her station’s news van when a female robber, Linda Sanchez approached her passenger side door, the sources said.
The suspect opened the van door and let a dog loose inside the vehicle before grabbing the Reporter’s bag from the seat, the sources said. The two women struggled over the purse, but the victim prevailed, they said. The thief only ran off with her identification.
Cops, who were nearby investigating the shooting, arrested Sanchez and charged her with robbery and criminal possession of a weapon, police said. She had a 4-inch blade on her, cops said.
Sources tell FTVLive that Vernon has still not returned to work and many staffers have no idea if she is still employed by the station or not?
Got to love the communications business.
