The Dalton Police are seeking a suspect in connection to a burglary on Showalter Avenue in Dalton on October 22nd. The suspect broke into the house at 900 Showalter Avenue, taking assorted jewelry valued in excess of $10,000 and also more than $8,000 cash.
A witness saw the suspect leaving the house, and described him as a Hispanic male, with dark skin, approximately 5'8 and weighing approximately 180 pounds. Apparently, he brought a bag of raw chicken with him to the house, throwing it in the back yard to distract the small dog and keep it from barking. The bag was from the Mini-Super store on 4th Avenue, and was left behind at the house. The store gave a police detective surveillance video of a man buying the raw chicken who matched the description of the suspect. Those images are pictured below. Store employees say that the suspect left in a dark-colored four-door pickup truck with a camper top.
Anyone with information about this man, his whereabouts, or any other information about this burglary is asked to contact Detective John Helton at the Dalton Police Department, 706-278-9085, extension 143.
