Dalton Police Department Investigating Multiple Auto Thefts

Thursday, December 5, 2019

The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify two people who are suspected in multiple entering auto cases that happened on Nov. 3, in Dalton. Two of the cases occurred at the ball fields at Heritage Park and a third happened to a traveler who was getting gas at a Dalton service station. The suspects used stolen bank cards to make more than $5,000 in fraudulent purchases.

The first two theft cases happened on Nov. 3, at the baseball fields at Heritage Park. Both victims reported that they were parked at the ball fields and left their wallets behind inside their vehicles. Later in the evening, they were contacted by their banks about suspicious activity on their accounts which alerted them to the fact that their wallets were stolen from their vehicles. The third case happened when a traveler from North Carolina stopped to get gas at the RaceTrac on Chattanooga Road. After leaving town, the victim was contacted by his bank that his cards were being used for multiple purchases in Dalton. Investigators determined that bank cards stolen in these incidents were used to make multiple gift card purchases at the Glenwood Avenue Kroger for more than $1,700 and a Walgreen’s store for nearly $700. The suspects used the last victim’s credit cards for five transactions at the Walnut Avenue Kroger store for a total of $3,078.77.

The suspects, a white man and a white woman, were apparently aware of the stores’ surveillance cameras, as they both wore black jackets and black hats and kept their heads down as they walked into and out of the stores. However investigators were able to retrieve images that showed much of their faces.

Anyone who knows these suspects or who has information on these crimes is asked to contact Detective John Edwards at 706-278-9085, extension 9152.
