A Dothan man and a Eufaula woman are accused of stealing four cats and releasing nine other cats from the Wiregrass Humane Society on Sept. 2.
Dylan Ryan Harvell, 18, and Sheleah Nalita Sheppard, 18, were arrested Sunday and are charged with third-degree theft of property.
“On Sept. 2, Mr. Harvell and Miss Sheppard entered the Wiregrass Humane Society and allegedly stole four cats and released nine additional from the premises,” said Dothan Police Lt. Lynn Watkins. “They then took the four cats to a residence and later tried to return the cats. The other nine cats have not been located at this time. A warrant was issued for Mr. Harvell’s and Miss Sheppard’s arrest, and they were both taken into custody Sunday.”
The cats are valued at $95 each, Watkins said.
Harvell is currently in the Houston County Jail on a $10,000 bond. Sheppard was released Sunday after posting a $10,000 bond.
