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.
