HAZEL GREEN, Ala. (WAFF) - One man is now behind bars in connection to a stolen vehicle in the Hazel Green area.
Madison County Sheriff’s investigators arrested and charged John Brian Alverson for theft of property in the 1st degree and burglary in the 3rd degree.
MCSO deputies say they observed the stolen vehicle around Hazel Green after a citizen complained of a suspicious vehicle being seen in the area.
Deputies turned around on the vehicle and that’s when they say the suspect bailed out of the vehicle and ran into the woods. He was found at a residence on Crystal Creek Drive shortly after.
Officials say this arrest is also linked to several vehicle burglaries in the Riverton and Winchester Road areas in Madison County.
More charges are expected.
