Dalton Police Department Seeks Suspect In Counterfeit Case

Friday, February 2, 2018

The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying a man who attempted to pass a counterfeit $100 bill at an area convenience store. The clerk recognized the bill as a fake and did not give him his change.

The incident happened shortly before 2 a.m. on Jan. 31, at the Mapco store at 2000 Chattanooga Road. A young white male came into the store and attempted to buy a pack of cigarettes with the counterfeit $100. The clerk recognized that the bill did not have the correct security features and appeared to have pink letters in what appeared to be Chinese characters where a serial number should have been. When the clerk challenged the suspect about the fake money, he immediately left the store along with a white female who came in with him. They drove away in a maroon late 90s model GMC Yukon.

The suspect was a white male with bleached blonde hair and appeared to have facial hair. He wore a black T-shirt with a gold or silver chain and a denim jacket and blue jeans.

Anyone who can identify the suspect or who has information about the crime is asked to please contact Officer Benjamin Porter at 706 278-9085, ext. 579 or by email at bporter@cityofdalton-ga.gov.

Refuting Racism

In an opinion piece, 5/18/18, Rev. Josh Woodrow referred to me and my fellow School Board member, Joe Smith, as racists and white supremacists because we spoke out against busing. I have never met or spoken with Rev. Woodrow so he knows nothing about me. The reverend obviously knows nothing about Joe Smith either. Seems one of the reverend’s hobbies is “brewing beer”. Maybe, ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: ‘Don’t Invent, Discover!’

When Randy Boyd stood in front of more than 75 black ministers in Memphis on Tuesday, the ever-dynamic “doer of deeds” told the pastors an exciting story.
