Dalton Police Department Seeks Identity Of Credit Card Theft Suspects

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying two suspects who used a stolen credit card on March 31, to make purchases at two locations in Dalton. One of the suspects was captured on surveillance video at a gas station and the second suspect was described to investigators by witnesses.

The victim told investigators that she was not sure if her wallet was stolen from her car which was parked at Dalton State College, or from her office on campus.  After she found her wallet was stolen, she contacted her bank and shut off her credit card, and found that it had already been used at the Office Depot and the Conoco station on West Walnut Avenue. 

Investigators spoke with staff at both locations and determined that the card was used by two suspects, a black male and a black female.  The male suspect was described as standing approximately 6’2” tall with a skinny build.  He wore a red and white T-shirt with black pants and white flip flops, glasses, and a black flat billed baseball hat.

The female suspect was described as having brown and purple hair with purple eye brows and stud piercings in both cheeks standing approximately 5’3” tall.  No picture of the female suspect is available.  The pair left in a silver-colored vehicle believed to be a Dodge Magnum.

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

Roy Exum: Could Obama Win Again?

When President Barack Obama spoke to the African Union yesterday in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, he made a pretty brash statement: “I actually think I’m a pretty good president,” he told the African leaders. “I think if I ran, I could win. But I can’t.” While everyone is entitled to their opinion, I don’t think that’s true. Obviously, term limits keep Obama from running, but as I sit ... (click for more)
