Dothan Police Lt. Scott Owens said the theft is believed to have begun in January 2020 and lasted through March of this year, during which time Jones allegedly stole over $24,000 from a business in the 3700 block of West Main Street.

Most of the money was stolen through a series of transactions where the employee sold a product or service, voided the transaction, and pocketed cash. Owens said the employer also noticed the cash drawer was lower than it should have been several times over the course of Jones’ employment.

Jones was arrested on Sunday and held on a $30,000 bond.
