DPD seeks identity of credit card fraud suspects

The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying two suspects who used a stolen credit card more than 20 times at locations around the Dalton area, running up more than $700 in fraudulent purchases. On at least one of those occasions, the suspects had children along for the ride.

The victim reported that the credit card was being used at locations around Dalton and Whitfield County in late November and early December. When DPD investigators retrieved video from Walmart of one of the transactions, they found a white male and white female making purchases. The female wore a winter hat and sunglasses inside the store and the male wore a black hooded sweatshirt with a black ballcap and sunglasses inside the store. The suspects left in a silver minivan. In all, the stolen card information was used 22 times in Dalton and Whitfield County including multiple occasions at both Walmarts in the county and several Dollar General locations. The fraudulent purchases totaled $745.  

Anyone with information on this incident or the identity of the suspects is asked to contact Detective Sam Eaton at (706) 278-9085, ext. 158.
