Jeffery Bruce Wilson, 30, of Dothan was arrested Sept. 17 and charged with third-degree burglary and second-degree arson. Houston County Judge Benjamin Lewis waived Wilson’s case to a grand jury, which will determine if enough evidence exists to indict Wilson for burglary and arson. Dothan Police charged Wilson with third-degree burglary and second-degree arson, a result of his allegedly torching a recreational vehicle camper at 5081 Third Ave. in Dothan. Officers were attempting to apprehend Wilson on Sept. 17 on burglary charges when he ran inside his RV. A short time later, Wilson ran out of the RV, which went up in flames, police said. The RV is destroyed. Police believe Wilson is the suspect in the Sept. 6 burglary at the Outpost Gun Shop in Dothan as well.
