Not telling the complete truth to police can land one in hot water, or so an Andalusia man found out Wednesday after being arrested not once, but twice by the Andalusia Police Department.

Sgt. Jody Scott said Scotty Devon Miller, 33, was initially arrested Monday after he not only allegedly pawned two guns valued at nearly $3,000. Scott said Miller claimed he didn’t steal the guns from the Green Acres area home; however, police found out otherwise, he said.

“Mr. Miller was first arrested for possessing the items and for the sale of the stolen items that, at the time, he claimed to have found,” Scott said. “Our investigation determined that Mr. Scott had broken into the residence and taken the items. He was arrested again and charged with theft of property I and burglary III.”

Scott said the guns, which are valued at more than $2,800, were sold at the Enterprise Express Pawn for $500 recovered. In addition to the firearms, jewelry and electronics were also stolen – some of which have been recovered, Scott said.

Miller is currently being held in the Covington County Jail on a $30,000 bond on the new charges.
