Dalton Police Seek Suspect In Motorcycle Theft

Friday, May 17, 2013

The Dalton Police Department is asking for help from the public in identifying a suspect in the April theft of a motorcycle from the parking lot of an area credit union. The incident was recorded by surveillance cameras, but only the van used in the crime was captured. The suspects could not be seen.

The incident happened shortly after 6:30 p.m. on April 7, at the HealthCom Credit Union at 1412 Chattanooga Ave. In surveillance pictures, a white van can be seen pulling up next to where the motorcycle was parked. Unfortunately, the video skipped during the theft of the motorcycle and the next frame shows the van turning around and leaving with the back doors slightly ajar and the front wheel of the motorcycle sticking out. The only occupant visible in the van was the driver.

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