A Boaz man is behind bars in connection to burglary and theft. Altoona Police Chief Eric Doran says he knew a home on Rockledge Road in Boaz was supposed to be vacant. When he drove by and saw the front door was open, he stopped and found Jeremy Turner inside trying to leave through the back door.
The chief says Turner broke into the home and stole costume jewelry. He was arrested and taken to the Etowah County Detention Center on a $3,500 bond. The jewelry was recovered and returned to its owner.
