ELIZABETHTOWN — A Fayetteville man admitted his part in a Bladen County home invasion four years ago, and on Tuesday he was sentenced to time in prison in Bladen County Superior Court.
Jason L. Johnson, 33, said he was one of three men who broke into a home and committed a robbery on Dec. 26 on Tar Heel Road in Tar Heel.
