Dalton Police Department Issues Warrants In Entering Auto Case

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

Thanks to multiple tips from the public, the Dalton Police Department has obtained arrest warrants for Kenneth Raymond, 44, of East Ridge, in connection with an August car burglary.  He is charged with burglary in the second degree, four counts of financial transaction card theft, two counts of theft by taking, and one count of financial card fraud.  

Raymond is currently in the Walker County Jail on another charge, and will be brought to Whitfield County when he is released.

The original incident happened Aug. 26when a car parked at a doctor’s office on Dug Gap Road was broken into by smashing a passenger side window.  A purse was stolen, and shortly one of the credit cards taken was used at a gas station on Walnut Avenue.  Investigators got a picture of the suspect from the store’s surveillance system and sent it to area media.  Several people contacted the Dalton Police Department and identified the suspect as Raymond, and investigators tracked him down at the Walker County Jail where he has been since the end of August on an unrelated charge. 

The Dalton Police Department thanks everyone who contacted police with the suspect’s identity.

What Is #NoogaStrong

Often we may ask ourselves what is wrong with these nuts. Often we run across the rude, crude and ugly. But when tragic happens, we all come together ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Chanie's Puzzling Poem

Ronnie Joice was in a bar in north London when he spied a poem tacked to the wall. The more he studied it, the more it revealed and, suddenly, he was floored.

Chanie Gorkin first posted it on her page ... (click for more)
