Dalton Police Department Investigating Shoplifting Of Groceries, Fireworks

Friday, June 8, 2018

The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying two people who shoplifted more than $100 in groceries and fireworks in the days leading up to Memorial Day. While it is not certain that the pair intended to use the stolen goods for a Memorial Day cookout, it is certain that they did not pay for them.

The incident happened May 24 at the Walnut Avenue Kroger. A white male and a white female loaded a shopping cart full of items and then pushed it out of the northern entrance to the store (the exit furthest from the checkouts) without making any attempt to pay for the items. The pair shoplifted approximately $60 worth of assorted meats, three 12-packs of an unknown drink, a six pack of Gatorade, an Oreo cookie cake, a package of Bounty dryer sheets and miscellaneous fireworks totaling $22. In all, the shoplifted items cost $121. The pair, a white male wearing a red T-shirt and jeans and a white female in jeans and a blue t-shirt, left in a dark colored passenger car. Pictures of the suspects are included with this release.

Anyone who recognizes these two is asked to please contact Officer Blake Hefner at 706-278-9085, extension 9584 or by email at bhefner@cityofdalton-ga.gov.

Drink Up, Chattanooga

I attended the meeting to discuss the placement of the sewage treatment plant at the Cambridge Center in Ooltewah today.

Roy Exum: Dear Faux Pelini

It has been my experience that of all the tribes and herds of different people on earth, sports writers are among the funniest people of all. Oh, there isn’t anything real sexy about Villanova beating Georgetown or a baseball player hitting for the cycle. Now, if a player hits a single, double, triple and homer in that order, that’s “a natural cycle,” and that is kind of fun to ... (click for more)
