Monday, October 30, 2017

The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying two women who apparently worked together to shoplift more than $100 in merchandise from a clothing store. The women took the merchandise into a dressing room together and left behind only empty boxes.

The incident happened Oct. 27, at the Kohl’s on Shugart Road. Just before 4 p.m., two women walked into the store and started to shop. One suspect, a blonde woman wearing a white and black shirt, carried a shoe box, a package of tights, and other items into the same dressing woman as her companion, a brunette who wore a gray or blue colored top and carried a light colored purse. The women then left the store and drove away together in a white-colored small SUV. Stolen were a pair of size 10 stiletto high heeled shoes valued at $49.99, a package of All-Over Solutions brand tights valued at $64.99, a package of unknown branded tights valued at $14, and a Modernform brand bra valued at $32.

The suspects were recorded on store surveillance.

Anyone who recognizes these women is asked to contact Officer Nicholas Smith at 706-278-9085, extension 9560 or by email at nsmith@cityofdalton-ga.gov.
