DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The executive director for the Dothan-Houston County Substance Abuse Partnership has been arrested on a first-degree theft of property charge.

Dothan police arrested Susan Trawick for allegedly stealing $16,829 while serving as a treasurer of the Hidden Lake homeowners association.

As a result, the partnership’s Board of Directors placed Trawick on administrative leave while they conduct their own investigation.

In her place, Tobacco Prevention Manager Judy Guiler will now serve as the acting executive director for the partnership.

“The Dothan-Houston County Substance Abuse Partnership remains committed to our mission of preventing substance abuse in our youth by providing the highest possible level of awareness, education, and positive peer influence,” Guiler wrote in a release.
