MORGAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A man and woman arrested for manufacturing methamphetamine in Morgan County, AL are also charged for a previous burglary in which authorities said they made themselves at home in a neighbor's house, and that when the neighbor came home, they discovered the man inside naked.

The victim, who did not want to be identified, said she had been away caring for a sick friend.

On November 7, she returned to her home on Luker Road in the Cotaco community. She discovered someone had barricaded her front door, so she broke into her house.

Once inside, she found Dennis Fielder naked, holding his small dog, a Chihuahua.

"When I walked in, there was a man standing nude in my living room holding a little dog. I asked him who he was, and what was he doing in my house," the victim said.

The victim recognized Fielder, who ran away with the dog.

A few days later, Morgan County Sheriff's Deputies arrested Fielder and Enola Hogdin. Investigators said they found Hogdin's clothes and an identification card in the home.

The victim said the two stole about $3,000 worth of property from her home, washed their clothes there, and used her cable to rent pornographic movies.

"It's a violation. It makes you feel you're not safe anywhere, especially not in your own home. Stole everything I had. I wish that he'd get clean because the drug is something that you just don't mess with," she said.

While out on bond on the burglary charge, Fielder and Hogdin were arrested for manufacturing meth at their mobile home. Morgan County Drug Task Force Agents said they found 15 meth labs during a search there.

The suspects each have an $85,000 bond in that case, and Sheriff Ana Franklin said she is asking a judge to revoke their bonds.

"This is a very good example of how drugs lead to other things throughout the community and to more crime," Franklin said.
