Dalton Police Department Seeks Suspect In Bank Card Theft

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

The Dalton Police Department is asking for help from the public with identifying a suspect who used a stolen debit card to make fraudulent purchases. Investigators believe that the suspect may live near the Atlanta area, because after the stolen card was used in Dalton, it was later used at a store along the I-75 corridor towards Cartersville.

The incident happened on the evening of June 16. The victim received a call from his bank to check on some suspicious activity on his bank card.  After checking with the bank, he discovered that his card had been used at the Shugart Road Home Depot at 7:53 p.m. and the Kroger on Walnut Avenue at 8:12 p.m. to make more than $100 in fraudulent purchases. The card was swiped again at the Kroger at 8:16 p.m. for another $112 purchase, but the card was declined.  The card was used later that night at a Kroger store in Cartersville.

The suspect was captured on surveillance video at the Dalton Kroger using the stolen card. He is a black male who appears to be in his late 20s or early 30s wearing a tan-colored baseball hat and a blue T-shirt and jeans with a gold chain.

Anyone with information on this suspect’s identity is asked to contact Detective Matt Lowery at 706 278-9085, dial 9 and enter ext. 133.
