Felony Arrest in Auburn
July 26, 2013
On Wednesday, July 24, 2013 the Auburn Police Division
arrested Keith R. Stephens, age 55, of Opelika on a felony warrant for Criminal
Solicitation to Commit Murder. Stephens arrest
stems from the investigation of a police report dated July 19, 2013 in which he
allegedly contacted an acquaintance and enlisted their assistance in locating a
third party to kill an ex-family member.
That family member currently resides in Opelika. Auburn detectives determined the allegation
was creditable and worked with the Opelika Police Department on the
investigation. As a result, Stephens was
taken into custody during an interview at the Auburn Police Division. He was transported to the Lee County
Detention Center where he is currently being held on a $75,000 bond.
