- According to her attorney, Lacy's father passed away on August 14, 2016. After numerous false claims made by Lacy of Jon's death dating back to 2010, Jon's passing has been confirmed.
- Dating back to 2006, when she worked for Film Garden Entertainment, Lacy has been telling people that she has Stage IV breast cancer, brain cancer, or ovarian cancer. It has been verified by the LAPD that Lacy does not have any type of cancer.
- Lacy has also given some of her victims a variation of her false cancer claims, with her father (Jon Matthew Johnson) being the one with some form of terminal cancer. On at least 4 different occasions, Lacy has told these victims that Jon died from his illness. On one occasion, Lacy told her now ex-fiance, his parents, and her boss that her father died of a heart attack.
- Lacy had told one of her ex-fiance’s that she had Stage IV brain cancer. She took $15,000.00 from him for her “ozone treatment.” His parents also gave her almost $9,000.00 for ozone treatments for cancer that she deliberately lied about having.
- Lacy told a former employer that her brother, Morgan Matthew Johnson, committed suicide on April 23, 2010. Lacy then went on to tell her ex-fiance in July 2010 that her brother Morgan Matthew Johnson died of a drug overdose on July 4, 2010. Morgan Johnson is alive.
- Lacy opened a credit card in her ex-fiance's name without his knowledge and began charging things to it. Her ex-fiance filed a police report and Lacy had been charged with identity theft. That charge was dismissed during a preliminary hearing on July 27, 2015.
- Lacy had worked as an assistant for a woman in Hollywood Hills with an online store in 2010. Over Memorial Day Weekend, Lacy broke into, burglarized, and vandalized the woman’s home. She stole thousands of dollars worth of clothing, shoes and jewelry. Lacy was arrested on Tuesday September 14th, 2010 and charged with grand theft and burglary.
- Lacy has previously told people she has a show on the Food Network Channel. According to executives at the Food Network Channel, that is a lie. She has also claimed that she is a producer and has connections to HBO, NBC and other networks. This also has been verified to be false. Lacy has never had a show produced by any of the Networks, nor has she ever sold a show or pitch to any Network.
- Lacy fled to Colorado Springs, CO in the summer of 2011, where she began making false claims of operating a non-profit organization called Care Package Bears. She created a Facebook page and website for this unrecognized organization so that she could fraudulently collect donations under the ruse that those donations would go toward making care packages for United States Military serving overseas. Here is a message that Lacy sent as the admin of the Care Package Bears Facebook page confirming her “re-location” to Colorado.
- Since Lacy Johnson’s crime spree has begun, she has managed to scam approximately $472,500 from those victims that have come forward.
