The Dalton Police Department is asking for information from the public to identify a suspect driving a red compact hatchback vehicle who entered several cars in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart on Shugart Road, stealing a speaker box from one of the victims. A surveillance picture of the suspect’s vehicle is included with this release.
The incident happened shortly after 8:00 am on May 17th. A store employee returned later in the day to find that his vehicle had been entered and his speakers were stolen. A DPD officer worked with the store’s loss prevention to review security tapes of the parking lot and found that a male suspect drove into the parking lot around 8:00 am and pulled into several parking spots around the lot and appeared to walk around looking into cars. He entered several vehicles, including the employee’s truck.
The stolen speakers are two 10-inch speakers mounted in a gray box with a large “Q” in between the speakers. The inside area of the speakers is orange. The suspect vehicle is a red compact hatchback, possibly a Honda Fit or a similar vehicle.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to please contact Detective Jason Bishop with the Dalton Police Department at 706-278-9085, extension 214.
