DOUGHERTY COUNTY, GA -

A man who was featured on WALB's Top 25 Most Wanted Street Sweep was captured by Dougherty County Police.

Steve Hill was arrested around 2 a.m. Sunday. He was picked up at the Suburban Mobile Home Park on Sylvester Road. Dougherty County Police says an anonymous tip led them to where Hill was hiding out.

"Contact was made with the homeowner who allowed officers to go in. Steve Hill was located in one of the bedrooms hiding underneath the bed. He was featured here recently on WALB Street Sweep," said Lt. Chad Kirkpatrick.

Hill is at the Dougherty County Jail. He has a list of charges including, probation violation and possession of marijuana.
