Woman Tries To Shoplift $700 In Merchandise In Dalton

  • Tuesday, October 16, 2018

The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify a woman who attempted to shoplift $700 worth of merchandise from Walmart on October. The suspect was stopped by the store’s loss prevention staff and fled the scene.

The incident happened on Oct. 4, at the Shugart Road Walmart. Shortly after 8 p.m., the suspect and a man were shopping in the store and loaded a shopping cart with merchandise totaling $700. The man walked out of the store carrying nothing while the woman started to put the items from the cart into Walmart shopping bags. She then pushed the cart down a line of vacant checkouts and towards the front door. After she passed the last point of sale and tried to leave the store, a loss prevention employee stopped her. The suspect let go of the shopping cart and fled, leaving the scene with her male companion in an older model silver Cadillac.

The suspect is a white or possibly Hispanic female with short dark hair. She wore blue capri pants and a dark black and blue shirt with sandals.

Anyone who recognizes this woman or who has information on this crime is asked to contact Officer Ben Porter at 706 278-9085, extension 9579 or by email at bporter@cityofdalton-ga.gov.
