On June 26, the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office says a homeowner on Old Oneonta Road was notified by her security cameras that someone was trying to break into her home. She contacted law enforcement, and Douglas police and sheriff's deputies arrived to the scene.

The sheriff’s office says Justin Beck of Boaz was found at the home and arrested. Authorities say he was driving a silver van and inside they found items stolen from the homeowner.
