Dalton Police Department Seeks Information On Dalton State Thief

Thursday, December 19, 2013

The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help with identifying a suspect who stole a wallet from the gym at Dalton State College in August and then used a stolen credit card to make more than $90 in purchases from nearby businesses.  The suspect was recorded on store surveillance video using the stolen card and surveillance pictures are included with this release.

The incident happened Aug. 21, when a Dalton State College student reported his wallet missing from the Bandy Gymnasium on campus. A check on his card’s activity showed that one of his cards was used shortly afterwards at the Racetrac, Burger King, and Kroger on West Walnut Avenue.  The card was also declined at a nearby BP Station. In all, the card was used to rack up $95.15 in fraudulent purchases.

DPD investigators retrieved surveillance video from the Burger King location of the suspect.  The suspect is a white male who appears to be in his late teens or early 20s with close cropped dark hair and long sideburns that reach his jaw.  He wore shorts and a light blue T-shirt. 

Anyone with information on the identity of this suspect is asked to contact Detective Matt Lowery at 706 278-9085, ext. 133.

When The City Was Silent

I don't know how to say this without getting my head handed back to me on a platter as is often the usual case. But at least I no longer receive the hateful (even threatening) emails and insults I became accustomed to. So I'll just bite and say it: I honestly don't see anything expressed by the NSM that hasn't been said locally on some level at one time or another, and ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: God Could Use You…

In the spring of 1968, this just before pro golfer Billy Casper would win six tournaments that year and be the leading money winner on the tour, the wildly-popular “Buffalo Bill” was in Japan playing some off-season tournaments. He was asked if he would like to visit some American soldiers who had been seriously wounded and Casper, ever the gentleman, said of course. As he melted ... (click for more)
