Brothers arrested in thefts of bulldozer, more

MONTGOMERY, AL - The Alabama Forestry Commission (AFC), in cooperation with the Marengo County Sheriff’s Office, Dallas County Sheriff’s Office, and the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries, has arrested and charged two brothers, each with two counts of receiving stolen property, first-degree, a class B felony.

Dwight Devan Johnson, 46, of Magnolia, AL was arrested Friday, November 6 and Aymar Johnson, 44, of Uniontown, AL was arrested Monday, November 9, 2009.  Law enforcement officers recovered a 2001 John Deere Skidder, valued at approximately $80,000.00 which was stolen in Greene County and a John Deere 650 bulldozer stolen from the Selma area.

If convicted, the two brothers could face up to 20 years in jail and $30,000.00 in fines for each count. Both men were taken to the Marengo County Jail and released after posting bond.

The Alabama Forestry Commission says it's committed to reducing the number of forestry-related crimes that occur each year across the state. The crimes generate losses of hundreds of thousands of dollars annually to landowners, the timber industry, and Alabama’s economy.

The AFC provides an Arson/Forest Crimes Hotline so that citizens can call and report theft of timber, theft or vandalism of harvesting equipment, and wildland arson.  The toll-free number is 1-800-222-2927. Information provided is confidential and the caller remains anonymous.
