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.
