Arrest Made in Fire Department Burglaries

A Lauderdale County man has been arrested and investigators are looking for a second person in the recent burglaries of two volunteer fire departments.

27-year-old Jonathan Price has already been arrested on two counts of receiving stolen property.

Authorities are still looking for Dustin Stokley. He's wanted for the same charges.

The two are suspects in weekend break-ins at the Alamucha and Center Ridge volunteer fire departments.

"A part of the property that has been stolen from one of the fire departments has been recovered," said Chief Deputy Ward Calhoun. "We're hoping to recover other property. The investigation is ongoing and has not ended."

Bond for Price was set at $20,000.

If you have any information in either of the burglaries or knowledge of Stokley's whereabouts, call Crimestoppers at 601-485-1860.
