The Dalton Police Department is asking for help from the public with identifying three women who shoplifted more than $1,500 worth of merchandise from TJ Maxx on Walnut Avenue. The three women left in a gold SUV with a Tennessee license plate.

The incident happened Feb. 9, at approximately 5:30 p.m. Two of the suspects entered the store together and the third suspect came in a minute later. The group walked to the section with women’s purses and took at least 10 purses valued at approximately $130 each and then went back to the home goods section and took several packages of bed linens. The three walked out together and left the store in an SUV.

The suspects were all black females. One woman wore a pink hat and black and grey outfit.  The second also wore a pink hat and a black jacket with jeans. The third woman wore a purple jumpsuit with her hair in braids that were pulled back. All three were recorded on the store’s surveillance system.

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