Arson and Burglary Arrest


A fire at a Dothan business Sunday night has landed a Henry County man behind bars on burglary and arson charges.

The blaze at The Money Express Pawn and Rental Shop in the 400 block of the Columbia Highway was reported around 7 p.m.

While extinguishing the flames, firefighters discovered a safe inside the business had been forced open.

Police began questioning employees after investigators discovered the front door of the business was unlocked.

Nineteen-year-old Jason Buxton of Newville is charged with burglary and arson second degree.

He's being held without bond in the Dothan City Jail.

Police said a business next door to Sunday night's fire was burglarized several weeks ago and Buxton is also a suspect in that case.
