|Cecial Arvay Satchell II|
Dothan Police Lt. Will Glover confirmed police arrested Cecial Arvay Satchell II, 27, of South Bell Street, and charged him with felony identity theft and felony financial exploitation of the elderly.
Glover said the victim in the offenses was the suspect’s 85-year-old grandmother.
“Mr. Satchell stole the identity of an elderly family member and opened up a credit card and began running up purchases on the credit card without the intention of paying for them,” Glover said.
Glover said the charges came as a result of police receiving an anonymous tip Monday about the offenses.
Court records show police charged Satchell with stealing $1,000 from the victim between Oct. 1 and Nov. 30, 2015.
Satchell was taken to the Houston County Jail and held on bail totaling $45,000.
Satchell’s arrest for felony financial exploitation of the elderly became the fourth such arrest by the Dothan Police Department within the last six weeks.
