DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — A Dothan man is charged with burglary after police say they linked him to several thefts in the Circle City that spanned almost two months.

According to Dothan Police, on February 8, Hubbard broke into five vehicles at a business in the 2800 block of Horace Shepard Drive and stole tools and a sign.

Police say on February 29, Hubbard broke into a storage building in the 100 block of Mance Newton Road and several storage units in the 400 block of West Carroll Street, and stole power tools from both places.

On March 3, Hubbard broke into four vehicles at a business in the 700 block of Harrison Road and, once again, stole power tools, police say.
