The Dothan Police Department Investigative Division has arrested Michael Allmon following the investigation of multiple ongoing cases. The suspect has been charged with three separate counts of felony theft.

The first charge, First Degree Theft, follows the report of a theft which occurred on September 21, 2010. During the offense, Allmon made contact with the owner of a home which was for sale on Rampart Drive and posed as a potential buyer. The victim allowed the suspect to enter the home, take photographs and look around. The home owner became suspicious of Allmons’ intentions when he suddenly departed. It was at that time the victim discovered jewelry had been stolen and called police to the scene.

The second charge, Second Degree Theft, follows the report of a theft which occurred on September 23, 2010. During the offense, Allmon once again made contact with the owner of a home which was for sale, this time on Danmore Place, and posed as a potential buyer. The victim allowed the suspect to enter the home and look around. After Allmon left, the home owner discovered jewelry and U.S. Currency had been stolen and called police to the scene.

The third charge, Second Degree Theft, follows the report of a theft which occurred on October 23, 2010. During the offense, Allmon made contact with the management staff at Golden Corral and posed as an OSHA Inspector. Allmon was allowed access to the managers’ office for routine inspections where surveillance video captured footage of him taking U.S. Currency.

Investigators said they are closing all three cases following the arrest made today but not ruling out the possibility that Allmon may have committed additional thefts using similar schemes. Police are asking anyone with information about these or similar cases to call the Dothan Police Department or CrimeStoppers 334-793-7000.
