The Scottsboro Police Department is offering a $1,000 reward in an effort to positively identify a suspect, which leads to an arrest, in connection with a series of burglaries.

“We are asking citizens in and around Jackson County Park and Byron Road neighborhoods to call and report any suspicious persons, especially those out late at night or early morning,” said Detective Scott Hamilton.

Hamilton said a man has been videoed walking around the area, committing burglaries and breaking into vehicles. Hamilton said it has been occurring for several months now.

“There is no need to be alarmed, just be aware,” said Hamilton. “We do not have any reason to believe the person responsible is a danger to the public, but we would like the person responsible caught.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact Hamilton at 256-574-4468, ext. 354, or private message the police department’s Facebook page. You will remain anonymous.
