The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify a man who used credit cards stolen in Dalton to rack up more than $600 in fraudulent charges at stores in Fort Oglethorpe. The cards from a parked car after someone broke out one of its windows.

The break-in happened in August at the soccer complex on Smith Industrial Boulevard.

The fraudulent transactions were recorded by store surveillance.
