MAN ACCUSED OF SEVERAL BURGLARIES ARRESTED SUNDAY IN TUSCALOOSA
A Northport man is facing burglary charges after police say he broke into several houses early Sunday morning.
Police said they responded to a burglary call in the 1400 block of Ninth Street around 5:30 a.m. Sunday and spoke to a woman who said she was woken up by a man touching her leg. The victim said he left when she screamed, and police said several witnesses also saw him leave.
A short time later, police said they responded to another burglary in the 600 block of Gene Stallings Avenue, where witnesses said a man had entered a woman’s room, then fled the home with several alcoholic beverages.
Police said they found Mitchell Dwight Hines, 52, of Northport a short time later, and he was identified as the suspect by the victims and several other witnesses.
Hines was placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail on two charges of second-degree burglary, with a bond totaling $60,000.
