A Dothan man accused of breaking into an Oakdale Circle residence on May 19 has been charged with third-degree burglary.

Hunter Johnston Hughes, 22, of Dothan, was arrested May 19.

Police say Hughes had broken into the residence and was in the process of burglarizing the home when the homeowner interrupted Hughes.

“Once the homeowner arrived at home and entered the residence, Hughes fled the scene, dropping the homeowner’s possession as he fled,” Dothan Police Lt. Lynn Watkins said.

Watkins stated a BOLO (be on the lookout) was issued for Hughes and he was later taken into custody by the Geneva County Sheriff’s Office.

Hughes was turned over to the Dothan Police Department and is now in the Houston County Jail on a $6,000 bond.
