Dalton Police Department Investigates Entering Auto Case

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help with identifying two suspects in the theft of several items from a car parked at an area business in March. 

The suspects were recorded on surveillance video using a bank card stolen in the incident to rack up more than $80 in purchases shortly after the theft occurred.

The victim reported to police that her unlocked car was entered in the parking lot of the New York Pizza at 101 East Walnut Ave. on the evening of March 5. Taken from the car were a brown Relic purse and Relic pocketbook, among other items. 

When the victim contacted her bank to cancel her cards, she was told they had already been used at the Kangaroo convenience store on East Walnut Avenue.  Investigators retrieved surveillance video from the store and saw two males wearing backwards baseball caps using the card to make purchases.

Anyone with information on this incident or the identity of the two suspects is asked to contact Detective Brian Shirley at 706 278-9085, ext. 189.
