Private Investigator Arrested for Theft by Deception

In November of 2021 the Dothan Police Department received a complaint from a victim alleging a private investigator in Dothan had taken advantage of them. As that was being investigated, an additional victim made a similar report. While investigating these claims additional victims came forward making similar allegations.

The facts and circumstances known about each victim was presented to the Houston County Grand Jury. The Houston County Grand Jury determined that there was sufficient evidence to move forward with prosecution and issued four indictments for Theft of Property by Deception 1st degree.
