Thanks in part to public response from a media release, the Dalton Police Department has made a pair of arrests in a recent credit card fraud case.  Jacob Lee Norris, 26, and Jean Marie Jones, 33, both of 903 Grandfield Pl., turned themselves in on warrants related to the case.

The original incident happened in late November and early December when a stolen credit card was used fraudulently more than 20 times around Dalton to rack up more than $700 in charges.  DPD investigators retrieved surveillance footage of several of the transactions and found that the suspects had children along during the incidents.   

Investigators distributed images of the two suspects in area media on Dec. 13.  After seeing news reports with the images, Jones and Norris contacted the Dalton Police Department.  An investigator obtained arrest warrants and served them Sunday after the pair surrendered.   

Norris was charged with 11 counts of financial transaction card fraud and one count of theft of lost or mislaid property.  Jones was charged with 12 counts of financial transaction card fraud and one count of theft of lost or mislaid property.  The mislaid property charge is in connection with taking the credit card in question, which investigators believe was dropped accidentally by the victim at a gas station.

Having been on several of Dr. Daryl Black's walking tours, I can say that they weren't just informative, but a treat. The downtown, Fort Wood and Ninth Street of yesteryear were brought dramatically to life. We stood on the ground where Sherman had his headquarters (near the Ice Cream Show) and the corner where Bessie Smith sang as a young girl. And we also stood beneath the ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: He’s Exempt From Drunk

I love the old story about a popular Senator who, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, was asked late one evening, “Sir, what if we get bombed?” to which came the quick reply, “I’d be absolutely delighted … I can get one of my aides to drive us home afterwards.” You think of stuff like that when word comes from Kentucky that state legislator Brandon Smith was caught driving erratically ...

The Hixson Wildcats have played a lot of close basketball games this season, but Tuesday's District 6-AA clash at Central wasn't one of them.

Despite all of that, there are still some talented players on the Central ... (click for more)
