Update: Warehouse Robbery Suspect Arrested

After 2-days, Dothan police say they have finished recovering all of the stolen property taken from several storage units throughout the city.

Wednesday police arrested 48-year old Sam James, of Vestavia Hills, which is just outside Birmingham.

He now faces a number of burglary and theft charges.

Police say James robbed approximately 20-storage units at five different locations throughout Houston County.

They say he stole tons of personal items including indoor furniture, guns, entertainment systems, and even several vehicles.

Two of those vehicles were stolen from Birmingham where police say James lived.

Cpl. Doug Magill said, "He actually works in Birmingham and he came down and visits his estranged wife apparently he is a delivery driver, and during his time off he is doing this things... taking things from here to Birmingham or bringing things from Birmingham down to here."

If you rent a storage unit in Dothan or Houston County, and suspect that you may have been robbed, contact Dothan police at (334) 615-3000.
