The Dalton Police Department is looking for the owner of a piece of recovered property that might have been either lost or stolen after assisting the Varnell Police Department with an investigation into another case.  The recovered property is a camouflaged “Fieldline” fanny pack containing numerous turkey calls. 

Varnell Police Chief Lyle Grant investigated an entering auto case on May 21 at 4021 West Parliament Dr. in Varnell in which two women’s purses and numerous other items were taken.  Chief Grant had been contacted by the victim who found her stolen purses for sale online at a site called Another New Teens Project.  The victim had already set up a meeting with the suspects in the case at the K-Mart on West Walnut Avenue in Dalton.  Chief Grant then contacted the Dalton Police Department for assistance.

Dalton investigators responded to the scene and found the victim in the case with Wendi Nicole Clarkson and Timothy Ryan Clarkson, both 28.  Detective John Helton confirmed that Wendi Clarkson was attempting to sell the victim actually the victim’s stolen property. Chief Grant observed a wallet matching one of the stolen purses on the back seat of the Clarksons’ vehicle. Detective Helton asked for permission to search the Clarksons’ vehicle, but was refused. Dalton investigators impounded the vehicle while they sought a search warrant for the vehicle. That warrant was executed and investigators found more stolen property belonging to the victim which they returned. Detectives also found methamphetamine and drug related objects in the vehicle.

Wendi Nicole Clarkson and Timothy Ryan Clarkson (both of 603 Spring Hill Heights Cir. in Tunnel Hill) were arrested and charged with theft be receiving stolen property, possession of drug related objects, and possession of methamphetamine on May 29.

The “Fieldline” fanny pack with the turkey calls was found inside of a backpack belonging to the victim, but does not belong to the victim.  If you believe that this is your property, please contact Detective Helton at 706.278-9085, extension 143.
