A Sylacauga man was arrested recently in connection with a theft from a Coosa County church.
Sheriff Michael Howell reported that on April 14 deputies were dispatched to County Road 150 in reference to a suspicious white male. Deputies arrived on the scene, located Shawn Matthew Hodges and conducted an investigation.
Through that investigation it was determined that a catalytic converter had been cut off a van belonging to Union Baptist Church, located on County Road 150 in Stewartville.
Hodges, 35 years old, was arrested and charged with possession of burglary tools for allegedly having items with which to commit a theft or burglary.
After further investigation, Hodges was also arrested and charged with the theft of the catalytic converter from Union Baptist Church. Ultimately he was charged with possession of burglary tools and first-degree theft of property.
His total bond was set at $25,000 for those two charges. As of press time he remained in custody at the Coosa County Jail awaiting trial.
