Robbery Suspect Arrested in Dothan

By  | 

A Dothan man suspected of participating in two home invasion robberies is behind bars.

On Tuesday, Dothan police arrested Zephaniah Moore and charged him with two counts of robbery, after they say he broke into two homes located along Valley Forge Road.

Corporal Frank Meredith, of the Dothan Police Department says, "We received some information working through the Marshall's Service and Dothan Police Department, that Mr. Moore was located on Bruce Street. We conducted some surveillance and ultimately took Mr. Moore into custody."

At the time of the arrest, Moore was out on bond for a murder charge stemming back to December of 2005, when police say he shot and killed another man.

After Moore was identified as a suspect in the recent robberies, Dothan police in conjunction with the U.S. Marshall Service tracked him down.

"The Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force sponsored by the U.S. Marshall Service, assisted in the apprehension of Zephaniah Moore," said Meredith.

Dothan police say their partnership with the task force will help them catch violent fugitives and criminal who target juveniles, a lot quicker.

Moore is now charged with two counts of robbery, and whether he will get bond for this crime has yet to be determined by a judge.

In the meantime, police continue to look for Elias McNealy, another man suspected of being involved in the robberies.

If you have any information about the whereabouts of McNealy, please contact the Dothan Police Department at (334) 615-3000.
