Dalton Police Department Investigating After Woman Tries To Buy TVs With Stolen Credit Card

Tuesday, February 13, 2018

The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help with identifying a woman who tried to use stolen credit cards to buy two TVs at Walmart. The transactions were declined.

The incident happened on Jan. 26. The victim in the case was running errands at several stores and realized at some point that she’d lost her wallet at one of the stores she visited in Dalton, but she was unsure which one. Soon after, the victim was contacted by Discover and also Capital One informing her that two of her credit cards had been used at the Shugart Road Walmart in an attempt to buy two large flat screen televisions. Both transactions were declined by the credit card companies. A Dalton detective was able to retrieve video of the transactions and found images of the suspect. The suspect is a heavy set white woman who wore jeans and a black Harley Davidson t-shirt with a baseball cap that appears to be dark green or possible camouflage. Pictures of the suspect are included with this release.

Anyone who knows this suspect’s identity or has information about this crime is asked to contact Detective Jacob Burger at 706 278-9085, ext. 9325.

Reflections On Billy Graham

Sandra and I are saddened this morning after learning of the death of Billy Graham.

He said the truth is that he had only moved to a new location".  I remember when we named 15th Street as Billy Graham Avenue, his daughter Gigi came for the dedication ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Me & Billy Graham

For several years in my life it seemed my bad arm and I spent more time at Mayo Clinic than we did in my own house. I hold the record for the most different infections in an elbow at the same time, and my medical charts never had my name on them, instead I was simply, “Mr. Complication.” One morning in particular I spent a horrible three hours in the “nerve conduction lab” with ...
