DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) - Dothan Police say they've linked 8 people and two different theft rings to at least 29 breaking and entering cases of both homes and vehicles in Dothan.
In a news conference today in Dothan, police announced the arrests of eight people, five men and three juveniles, who have been operating in two different "theft rings" since September.
Authorities say these groups were hitting vehicles and homes, taking whatever they could use to make a profit with along the way. But their downfall started when fighting broke out between the two groups and they turned against each other.
So far eight people, five men and three juveniles, have been charged with the crimes. While police cannot identify the juveniles due to their age, authorities did provide a list of adults charged in connection with the rash of break-ins.
Police say 18-year-old Justin Lomaneck is charged with five counts of breaking and entering of a vehicle, 23-year-old Joshua Guy is charged with seven counts of breaking and entering and four counts of burglary, 18-year-old Kendrick Corbitt is charged with fraudulent used of a credit card and breaking and entering, and 34-year-old Jerrold McLeod and 20-year-old Cordelius Sol are both charged with robbery, assault, kidnapping and burglary.
Police added that this investigation is ongoing and additional charges are possible.
