Over the past twenty four hours the Dothan Police Department has responded to numerous theft calls that appear to be connected. Police say someone has been stealing storm drain covers and water meter covers which are 2 inch covers that look like man-hole covers, but are lighter. Investigators have compiled reports and say at this time it appears a total of thirty five covers have been taken from at least three areas; Hidden Lake sub division, a cul-de-sac off of Brannon Stand Road and the residential area behind North Side Mall.
Police are asking anyone with information about the case or identity of the suspect to call the Dothan Police Department or CrimeStoppers 334-793-7000. Residents are being asked to stay alert and call police if they see any suspicious activity near areas that have these covers.
