The suspect left the scene and later contacted the victim on her cell phone making threats. The suspect was captured on the school surveillance camera and was identified by a Dothan Police Investigator who had prior contact with him in 2009. The suspect was identified as white male Tony Michael Canterberry, 26 years of age of Dothan.

On April 8, 2010, Midland City Police spotted the suspect on a vehicle in Midland City, Alabama. A traffic stop was conducted and Canterberry was taken into custody. Canterberry was transported to the Dothan Police Department where he was booked in the Dothan City Jail for Theft of Property Second Degree and two counts of Making Terrorist Threats with a total bond of three million dollars. Canterberry will be transferred to the Houston County Jail later today.

The Dothan Police Department would like to thank the Midland City Police Department for their assistance with this case.

    I am Tony's mother...Tony has to pay for this crime-but remember, he has a family too...My son has never physically harmed a soul and cares deeply for children and anyone else in need...It isn't his first rodeo- but it is his last...He is my baby son and his brother died six yrs. ago, and Tony has suffered greatly over that. Tony is loved by his mother and father, brother and sister- nieces and nephew...Please don't judge...

    I hope that the teacher and her family feel some relief and are able to sleep much better.
