The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying a man who used a stolen credit card to rack up more than $450 in fraudulent charges. The card was stolen from a man’s bag left unlocked in a gym locker room.
The theft happened sometime between 4:30 and 6:45 pm on January 15th. The male victim left his belongings unlocked in a gym locker room while he worked out. After he left, he discovered that his brown leather wallet with a large Georgia Tech “GT” logo on it had been taken from his bag.
The victim contacted his bank and discovered that his bank card had already been used three times at the outlet stores in Calhoun, Georgia. The card was used for purchases totaling $320 and $69 at the Polo Ralph Lauren outlet and at the Oshkosh store for $96. A Dalton detective was able to retrieve surveillance images of the man who used the stolen card from the Polo store. He is an African American male who was dressed from hat to shoes in Nike workout attire and had white ear bud headphones in while shopping in the store. He also had what appears to be the Nike logo shaved into the back of his hair or a birthmark. Images of the suspect from the surveillance cameras are included below.
Anyone with information on this theft or the identity of the suspect is asked to please contact Detective Brain Shirley at 706-278-9085, dial 9 and enter extension 189.
